Here are a few German made glass ornaments, made between 1900 and the 1920's. The glass is paper thin, and they are as light as a feather. Most likely these ornaments were made in the area of Lauscha, a 16th century town in the German state of Thuringia. Lauscha is consider the "birthplace of Christmas ornaments". The inside of the ornaments are given a coating of silver nitrate, while the outside is hand painted with various colors using a brush, or airbrush. Considering how fragile these ornaments are, it is a wonder they survived 100 years or more.
