Handmade with real vintage ornaments - One-of-a-Kind
Off we go, deep into an enchanted forest filled with Nature’s soft colors of green with blue sky overhead and a bit of pale amber and gold. This lovely wreath, made from all vintage ornaments and decorations, features an unusual large furry reindeer as a focal point. Our friend Bambi was made in Japan of a celluloid-like plastic and was carefully covered with soft cottony batting complete with little spots, glass-like eyes, and a gold collar from which dangles a tiny little bell.
But Bambi is not the only point of interest. The top of the wreath features a large green glass spray with silver foil leaves that looks like a bunch of grapes. It is accented on the left by a spiky blue pick, a gold icicle, and a huge green teardrop ornament. Right in the middle of the top is a special German figural ornament in the shape of a log with a little woodchopper elf on it. And on the right, just beneath the grapes is a fabulous jumbo Poland ornament in soft gold with tiny colored dots of color hand-painted on a fish scale design. There is also a World War II-era un-silvered green and white striped Shiny Brite.
Other points of interest are: a large pale blue Merry Christmas stenciled Shiny Brite; a gold stenciled Shiny Brite with a reindeer motif; a fun ball with a Currier & Ives skating scene; a delicate top-shaped German ornament in dark green and silver (atop Bambi); a “Fauxbergé egg"; a hand-painted egg with a little deer family on it; and a host of other Shiny Brites, Poland, and German ornaments.
All of it is set upon a base of gold tinsel garland and is accented with snips of vintage gold and green garland around the outside edge. There are exuberant swoops of bright green beaded garland as a final flourish.
Your heirloom wreath comes with its own zippered storage bag to protect it. Please hang it indoors, away from the harsh elements, to ensure that these beautiful ornaments which have been passed down through generations will grace your own family for many years to come.
The wreath measures approximately 19” wide and 23” tall, including the bits sticking up and dripping off.
