The clown welcomes us with a crying and a laughing eye. The edge of his blue cap is sprinkled with real glass mica. The iron cap at the upper end is to easily fix the ornament on the Christmas tree.
The place of origin of the glass ornaments is the area around Lauscha in Thuringia. In the beginning it was just a substitute for real fruit which a poor glass-blower could not afford. With time, the diversity of glass ornaments for Christmas trees grew. Their popularity grew and they became a real bestseller.
