Circa: 1939 Country of Origin: Germany Manufacturer: Pre War German Import
Two nice blown glass Christmas ornaments made in late 1930s Germany but possibly not exported to the USA until after the war. One is a stylized mushroom or parachute shape, 3-1/2 inches high. It's decorated in rust-red with painted white "roping" stripes and three wide vertical bands of thick white mica glitter.
The other ornament is a shade taller, a hot air balloon shape in earthtone rust-red and dark green. This ornament has green stripes on alternate ribs at the top. A band of mica glitter rings the center, the lower have is red with white painted comma-stroke leaves. This ornament has a cloudy appearance to the upper half due to degradation of the inner silvering. Both ornaments have some typical minor age wear - small paint scratches and glitter loss. No chips or breaks.
