Blown in Lauscha, Germany, in 1900, by the manufacturer, Krebsglas, we see a collection of glass Christmas ornaments.
These Christmas decorations are typical of the east German region of Thuringia which has long been celebrated for its glass-blowing and lampwork. These examples from 1900 are mould-blown. The spire--intended for the top of the tree--is particularly fine and was most likely from a mould from the late Nineteenth Century.
