Radiant Filigree Star ~
Gold & Silver-Plated Lametta
Luxurious Victorian Star Ornament
Exclusively ours from Germany
A glorious, glittery radiant star of gold and silver, this Lametta ornament can also be used as a tree topper for small tabletop trees. Created using a mix of gold-tone and real silver-plated tinsel, this large metallic star will darken with age to achieve an antique, aged look.
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 star ornament.
Large, 12-pointed filigree tinsel
