Filigree Tinsel Comets
Gold-Tone Lametta
Luxurious Victorian Ornaments
Exclusively ours from Germany
Heavenly shooting stars for trimming the tree, our glittery comets are made from real Lametta tinsel, just like in Victorian times! These filigree comets are plated with a gold-tone, metallic finish that will darken slightly over the years to an aged, antique patina.
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 a set of three ornaments.
The 7-pointed filigree tinsel comets
are all about 3¾” wide by 3¼" high.
