Collect this springtime Patricia Breen "Miniature Tulip Finial" Gold, Retired, 3-Tier, mouth-blown and handcrafted Polish glass Christmas ornaments, 1998, B9848, 9848.
Produced in 1998 and subsequently retired, the European hand blown glass flower ornament was produced as an assortment of six colorations, each of them highly collectible and sought after.
Absolutely exquisite 3-tier golden floral theme finial!
Four different colored tulip illustrations adorn the bottom tier of this finial, as if somebody plucked them out of the ground and planted them onto a golden glitter loam.
The lavender, yellow, red and orange flowers rise harmoniously with their exposed brown bulbs and roots. Green iridescent glitter trims their hand painted green stems and leaves to add a shimmering contrast against the solemn gold and brown undertones.
A fully glittered gold ring connects the bottom and middle tiers together.
On the middle tier, two multicolored violet and yellow tulips frame a painted, pastel yellow banner, inscribed with a black, hand painted "Tulips." A tiny, handpainted red ladybug crawls around on the left yellow tulip. Note the fine, black detailing on the ladybug - six dots on its back, six legs and two antennae!
Rising magnificently from the top tier, a fully glittered gold spire twists and twirls toward the sky above.
Approximately 10 1/2 inches tall, 2 3/4 inches wide at the bottom tier and with a 1/2 inch diameter opening, the miniature finial tree topper commands excellent presence as a centerpiece display. The European handblown glass ornament is a wonderful addition to any Breen springtime, floral, and Easter collection.
