A whimsical and delightful blown glass unsilvered penguin Christmas ornament made in Italy in the 1950s or 1960s, just under 6 inches high. The cute little guy is painted glossy black shading to gray with a white belly, big cartoon style eyes and long painted lashes, orange beak and feet. Silver glitter outline the side wings and the penguin wears a red glittered bow tie.
There are no chips or breaks and the paint is excellent. There's a tiny little flaw to the glittered bow tie where it looks like the glue brush slipped.
