Davy Crocket. Glass Christmas Ornament.

 

Mid-1960s Italian Figural Ornament. Fantastic Detail, Paint.

 

Davy Crocket as a Christmas ornament for the tree.. one of our great pioneers.

Great gold deerskin suit, trimmed with brown painted fringes.

A little cardboard rifle in his right hand.

Brown laced buckskin shoes.

Great molded and painted buckskin hat, with tail in back.

Face is so smiling, and accepting.. really cute.

 

What a neat figural Christmas tree ornament.

 

6.50” in length, the ornament is in very good condition as you an see.

 

Germans who fled Nazi Germany and settled in the area of Lake Como in Northern Italy had the skills for blowing glass ornaments as they had done in Germany for decades. And the Italians had the skill of blowing glass.

 

Thus the Germans taught the Italians the art of Christmas ornament making. First, they used molds as they had did in Germany. But the Italians themselves soon realized that as the Germans began production of mold ornaments in West Germany again after World War II, that they could not compete.

 

The Italians then started taking a single tube of glass and employing a paddle, created unbelievable figural ornaments as you see here. We have seen the process of creating these ornaments in person in the area of Lake Como, have seen their examples in museums of these early pieces, and just have to part with some in our collection. This particular ornament was blown by the De Carlini family as we have seen this one in their museum collection at the family business in Italy.

 

 

There is nothing wrong with these Christmas ornaments other than age. These being listed tonight are in very good shape. They are vintage, not reproductions. I guarantee that. I start all my auctions at .99 cents as it is an auction and I just never cared when I went to live auction and the auctioneer started very high, and then spent time backing down to get a bid.

 

I am happy to combine postage on multiple orders.

 

Just let me know you are multiple bidding, and I will invoice you when you are finished bidding and wish for me to send the items. Then, I will combine postage and send to you, and send final invoice. If any questions about this, please email me.
