Mouth blown glass Christmas birds

Boxes of 3 clip on silver and white feathered bird baubles. Mouth blown into two part gypsum moulds and traditionally silvered by swilling the inside of the still warm baubles with a silver nitrate and sugar based solution. From small lamp glass workshops in Lauscha, Germany, the town where in 1847 Hans Greiner was credited with their invention, and where the blowing of Christmas ornaments, lamp-working of glass eyes, animals, even medical equipment, still exists as an almost cottage industry.
