I'm like a little bird...always bringing things back to my nest

I was so happy the day I found this at a garage sale. It is a 4" German kugel...very heavy glass. What I've been able to find when researching them is that this one was probably made 1880-1910. Silver is the most common color.
It was wrapped in this old glittered cotton batting. It looks like it has been protected by this discolored wrapping for a long time. I think I paid $1 for it. I don't think it's very valuable as far as kugels go, but it is very special to me...kind of like uncovering buried treasure.
Have a special day!


  1. I have never heard of a kugel before. That is so amazing that it is so old and has survived many Christmases. It's lovely.


  2. Think of the Christmases that ornament has seen:):) Angela, you'll have to find a special place for it. Smiles to you and yours, Susie

  3. It almost looks like mercury glass, doesn't it. I think it's beautiful. I love it when I find something for cheap and it's a treasure. It makes it even more of a treasure to me. Blessings, Diane
