The deeper the indent in an ornament ...
the older it is.
Love the OWL and car.
Purchased this large box of antique ornaments at an Estate Sale this year for $16.50. You can see the tag in the top, right corner. You can see sixteen or so here, but there was about ten more.
These antique scraps were purchased about forty years ago when we lived in California.
I put a cardboard easel backing on the big ones so I could stand them for display.
The blue one is about 13" tall and the red one on the right is 12".
Just beautiful ...
These Scraps were removed from a Scrap Book and I was also able to purchase this inscription. The scrapbook was full of wonderful scraps, letters and mementos. It was being kept for a man in service by the girl that was waiting for him to return home. It was sad that the scrapbook being taken apart and being sold scrap by scrap.
