This piece is a Dresden ornament as candy container, the slide from  the bottom half. Bucket construction is of two halves and has only a handle on one side.

A tinseled ribbon ties around the neck of the bottle and acts as the hanger. It is a nice ornament but has some condition issues. Please view other images for condition details. Approx. 3" high.
