Blümchen's Fanciful Tinsel Icicle Ornaments in
Vintage 1930's 'Lametta-Eiszapfen' Boxes
Treasures from our Archives
Exclusive Lametta Ornaments
from the Blümchen Atelier
Fanciful old stock ornaments that date from
Holiday 1998 to 2006, these petite Lametta
tinsel ornaments were designed and crafted
in our Ridgewood atelier. Each ornament is
made entirely by hand using materials that
are either antique, vintage or traditional. All
of the ornaments are individually packaged
in 1930's icicles boxes that are so cute you
can even hang them as decorations on the
Christmas tree! Quantities are limited.
These lightweight ornaments are especially
suited for hanging from the very tips of tree
branches, because they add a bit of sparkle
where a heavier ornament just won't do.
About the Lametta tinsel
Made in Germany, this genuine old Lametta
tinsel dates to the 1930's and 1940's. Kept
stored in the attic of a factory that survived
WWII, we were delighted when the owners
of the factory offered us all their remaining
stock of these rare tinsel icicle trims. A bit
thinner and stiffer than modern Lametta, do
note that these real metallic tinsels have all
darkened somewhat due to their age.
