Dresden Animal Ornaments
Holiday 1988 ~ Made in Western Germany
Old Stock from 1988
Dresden Animal Ornaments
Made in West Germany
Charming, double-sided Dresden Christmas ornaments that were featured in Blümchen's
Holiday 1988 catalog; we still had a box full
of these old-time treasures stored in our attic!
Made 30 years ago in Western Germany, the
ornaments are still in very good condition.
Manufactured from heavy cardboard stock
with a colored foil coating, the stamped and
die-cut animals are deeply embossed. Made
as a set of mirror-image figures that you can
glue together to create one double-sided
animal, or just cut them apart into two bas
relief Dresden Christmas ornaments.
A Note about Condition
Please be aware that these unique
cardboard ornaments were made in
the traditional manner on vintage
machines. Due to the thickness of
the cardboard and the embossing
method, the shiny foil covering on
some of the ornaments may show
splits and thin tears on the foil.
Make a Double-Sided Ornament
You will need white glue-all, paint brush
and a pair of scissors: trim both halves
of the ornament, then paint glue around
the inside edges. Position the sections
back-to-back; hold tight until secure.
