WWI Styling Airplane Christmas Ornament, 3 1/4" from the Merck Family's Old World Christmas Glass Ornaments collection. OWC #46072 (2018 New Release)
Double layer wings aircrafts (bi-planes) were a common sight in World War I, along with them being decorated with circles with a dot or star in the center. They were also used for crop dusting and other activities. This ornament features a red bi-plane with a yellow top and bottom wing plus patriotic colors stars inside of circles on the top. Though we have added this item to our retro collection, there is still a plant in in Michigan, Waco Aircraft, and these otherwise obsolete forms of transportation are still made at that facility All sides of this ornament are nicely detailed. It is made of blown glass, delicately hand-painted and has sparkling glittered accents.
