Dresden Ornaments

Hello Everyone..

I'm joining
A Return to Loveliness-Christmas with Victoria

I love Delicate Dresden Ornaments.  I am so blessed to own two.

I have collected angel ornaments for over 20 years.  I don't remember when or where I acquired these two precious and beautiful angels, but I know for sure they are truly my top favorites. 



The detail on this beauty is amazing. Embellished with tinsel, lace and small satin roses makes this handmade angel remind me of days gone by when the Victorian tradition started with Queen Victoria popularizing the delightful custom of the Christmas tree in England. And the beautiful paper ornaments first crafted in and around Dresden, Germany in the mid-nineteenth century. Hence the name.






What a beautiful sweet face. I could study the design of this ornament for hours.  Such a work of art.







I had my inspiration for this post from the wonderful story about 'Delicate Dresden Ornaments' in Victoria November/December 2009
