This listing is for a new in box with tag, original issue Plaza Hotel New York City 3D Christmas ornament with the green roof from the 2012/2013 collection. The 3D ornament is hand blown hand-painted glass depicting a likeness of the hotel from its four sides. This version has the green roof whereas most of these ornaments had a blue roof. The green roof is actually a more accurate depiction of the hotel.
The ornament is 4 inches tall, from the bottom to the top of each spire; the front and back measure 2 1/4 inches across while the sides measure 2 3/4 inches across. The ornament was made in Poland for the USA based Joy to the World Collectibles exclusively for the Plaza Hotel. Each glass ornament takes seven days to complete from the blowing of the glass to the final touches of glitter. Every stage of making this ornament is done entirely by hand. This is from the hotel's 2012/2013 ornament collection and is part of the original issue of that particular ornament.
Thank you to a collector who pointed out to me the tag's date. There was a reissue of these ornaments in 2015 because of their popularity (those tags will indicate 2015) however this is from the original issue. The photos are of all sides, top and bottom. The ornament pictured is the same one you will receive.
The ornament is in mint condition. Its box has some edge wear and storage wear. PLEASE NOTE: The embossed metal ornament cap has two prongs splayed in the back and pushed tightly onto the ornament top.
This appears to be a fault, but it was not. I was told than one of the makers felt this was a more secure way to keep the ornament cap intact as some that were done in the normal way would pull away from the ornament and cause the ornament to fall and break. This method does keep the cap on securely, but may not be attractive; however it is not that noticeable. I suppose the cap could be fiddled with and "unsplayed", but that may make the cap less secure. You can see the ornament cap situation in the 6th photo and in the last three photos.The item "The Plaza Hotel New York City 3D Christmas ornament New in box Rare green roof" is in sale since Sunday, November 10, 2019.
