This is a good representation of the iconic New York City Checker cab which served the metropolis for many decades. Despite the inherent limitations of glass, it features very accurate model-like details, including tires, wheels, grille and headlights, bumpers, windows, doors, and more. It is about four inches long.

The ornament was available from the Macy’s website at Christmas 2009 for a price of $8.99.
