Filigree Tinsel Starburst
24-Karat Gold-Plated Lametta
Luxurious Victorian Star Ornament
Exclusively ours from Germany
A gleaming, celestial Christmas star for the tree, this old-fashioned starburst is made of real Lametta tinsel, just like in Victorian times! The three-dimensional starburst is plated with 24-karat gold, so it will stay shiny and bright for many holiday seasons to come.
Our old-time filigree tinsel ornaments are made using real German Lametta, which is a flattened copper "Lahn" that has a shiny, plated metallic finish. To create ornaments, this stiff Lametta is spun spirally through a wire center. Still produced on an antique machine that dates to the early 1900's, this style of tinsel ornament has been produced in Germany for more than 120 years.
Sold as one tinsel ornament.
The 12-pointed, three-dimensional
Lametta tinsel star is 3½" wide.
