Victorian Christmas Ornaments




Circa 1890

I simply adore vintage Christmas ornaments, so I was thrilled to find these at the Minnesota Historical Society.  I wish I had ornaments one tenth this gorgeous.  Most of these ornaments were simply made with glass, paper, and wire.  The simplest things are the best.  This is the perfect example of why I adore vintage things.  To me, these are more beautiful than most things available today.  I wonder who made these and how they were made?  I would love to have these adorn my Christmas tree.
