Listing Includes

- ONE antique blown mercury glass ornament of lyre and paper lithograph (as shown)

Item Condition

Amazing condition for an ornament so old (made around the turn of the 1900s). The shiny silver mercury glass show darkening at end of pikes and around cap. The paper litho appears to have been previously attached to another piece, showing residue on the back. The folds are so fragile that one split during photographing and was re-attached with washi tape.
