This authentic light gold kugel glass Christmas ornament was made in Germany in the late 1800s. It measures just under 3 inches diameter and is almost 9 inches in circumference.
Kugels are colored within the glass, the yellow-gold finish isn't painted on. It's highly reflective but does have spots and speckling from age degradation of the inner silvering. The effect is enhanced in the photos due to lighting conditions. There's a tiny spot or two of old candle wax - this kugel apparently hung on a tree before electric Christmas lights were widely available. The 5-leaf embossed brass cap is firmly attached and does not slide.
