Item Description

Collect this superb 17th Century styled Christopher Radko Minuet Woman, mouth-blown and handcrafted retired Italian glass Christmas tree ornament, 1996, 96-167-0, 961670.

Made in 1996 and soon retired, this fine European hand blown glass ornament is suitable for Valentines Day or for other special occasions.

The minuet lady wears a French style ball gown typical during the reign of the Sun King, Louis XIV, in the 17th century. As she dances, her dress that is adorned with pearl glittered trim, a hand-painted bow, and yellow and pearl roses garlands gracefully flows. Note her convincing curled gray wig.

Her beautifully dimensional eyes produce a flattering, starry-eyed expression.

The "minuet" is a social dance for two people that originated in France, performed in 3/4 time. The term came from the both the Italian words "minuetto" and the French word "minuet" or "menu" implying small, perhaps referring to the small steps. The term also refers to the musical form that accompanies the dance, eventually evolving into the "minuet and trio" longer structure.

Standing approximately 6 1/2 inches tall, the wonderful European handblown glass ornament has great presence and is great find for the Radko Italian, history, ball or Christopher Radko holiday ornament collector.
