Circa: 1939 Country of Origin: United States Manufacturer: Shiny Brite
Shiny Brite made these figural glass Christmas ornaments from the late 1930s to early 1940s. They may have brought them back for a short time right after World War II, but were gone for good by the beginning of the 1950s, in favor of the decorated round and space-age style shape ornaments.
They're about 2-1/2" diameter and have a beaded or bumpy texture with flower indents on both sides. I usually see them in silver, but these are brightly colored in hot pink or magenta and mint green. Both ornaments have their correct scalloped and ribbed metal caps marked Shiny Brite Made In U.S.A. and both are in excellent condition with bold color, no damage and virtually no age wear, scratches, or spotting. They are not new however, and do have some loss of the inner silvering near at the necks and just below.
