1930s Premier Glass Double Indent Christmas Ornaments
These five double indent glass Christmas ornaments are among the very earliest American ornaments, made by Premier Glass Works in the mid to late 1930s and are not easy to find today.

The two smaller red ornaments are 1-3/4 inches diameter by about 2 high. The others are 2-1/2 inches diameter by 3-1/4 high.

The backs are shiny silver. Both ornaments are in excellent condition.
2 Japan Kugel Style Figural Berries Glass Christmas Ornaments
These pretty 1920s berry shaped blown glass Christmas ornaments were Japan's answer to German and French kugel Christmas ornaments. The glass isn't as heavy but the ornaments were made in similar manner to traditional kugels, with the mercury silvering on the inside of the ornaments and the color in the glass, not painted on. The ornaments are just over 3-1/4 inches high. One is a beautiful deep cobalt blue, made of blue glass with silvering on the inside. The other berry is made of amber glass, causing the interior silvering to appear gold. It was then painted with a clear orange tint. The orange finish has developed worn areas over the years, so that the ornament virtually glows with layers of amber, gold, and orange color. They have traditional metal ornaments caps marked Japan, not kugel style caps. Both ornaments are in excellent condition with no chips or damage. Price is for the pair.
Pink And Blue Stripes Unsilvered Christmas War Ornaments Wwii
These unsilvered 1940s glass Christmas ornaments are from World War II, when wartime restrictions on silvering agents forced manufacturers to use painted and flashed-on non-metallic colors and finishes. Two of the ornaments have paper hanger caps, also a result of metal shortages during the later years of the war. The 2-1/4 inch ornaments have some wear to the paint or age discoloration, but they're so pretty in unusual pink and blue stripes over clear transparent glass - unusual colors for this era. One has pink comma-stroke leaves above the blue stripes. There are no breaks or chips and the two fragile paper hangers are still intact without tears or bends.

The tinsel is loose at the center right edge but the old original glue still holds it in place elsewhere. The crepe finish has a little wear at the top and edges, nothing serious. The scrap angel is perfect with no tears or damage. There's a tiny hole at the top of the canoe for hanging.

A couple of the angels have some scratches to the paint as shown. Comes in original box.

1940s Plastic And Glass Dimensional Window Pane Christmas Ornaments
A pair of scarce and unusual 1940s American made plastic Christmas ornaments with tiny mercury glass ball ornaments hanging in the 4 paneled centers. The transparent bead-textured frames are two pieces that fit together, forming a four-part window pane arrangement, 3-1/4 diameter by about 2-1/4 inches high not including the molded-in hanging hooks. Hooks at the center tops of each pane hold four little half-inch mercury glass balls, or other appropriately sized decorations of your choice. I've seen similar dimensional plastic ornaments in star, snowflake, or circle shapes but I've never seen this shape or type before, not even in my many Christmas ornament books.
This elaborate 1950s painted hard plastic Santa Claus Christmas candy container is unmarked but was made by Rosbro / Rosen. Santa blows a yellow horn while standing in two-wheeled cart being pulled by three white reindeer. Santa's Candy Wagon is written in white script lettering on both sides of the red cart. Overall length is 9-1/2 inches, height is 8-1/2 inches. The reindeer on the left side has a break to his right front leg, shown in the second and third pictures. The only other issue is that the letter T appears to be uncrossed on the left side of the wagon (last photo).
2 Unused Packs German Gold Lametta Christmas Tinsel
Two never used packages of Brilliant Gold Lametta Christmas tinsel, heavy strands that are probably made of lead or a lead-based metal. The length is hard to measure as they're folded over inside the heavy paper wrapper, but I estimate about 20 inches long. The writing at the bottom of the folder is in German, the litho graphics of decorated Christmas tree branches against a red background are very attractive. I'm not sure of the age, possibly 1930s based on the clip-on lit candle in the illustration - I don't think burning candles were used on Christmas trees anywhere after that time period. Other than .25 price marks in ink on the sleeves, they're in excellent condition. Buyer gets both packs.
3 German Mercury Indent Christmas Ornaments Spun Glass Strands Inside
A set of three rare 1930s or earlier German blown mercury glass diorama indent type glass Christmas ornaments with double pikes. Instead of a little scene inside the indent, each ornament has a spidery rosette of fine spun glass strands in the centers. Each has a band of color encircling the web of spun glass, rust-orange or black-green. The ornaments are 2-3/8 inches diameter. The pikes at the center backs are left open, allowing Christmas tree lights to back light and enhance the center decorations. They're very thin and fragile, with the deep center indents almost touching the back walls. There is some finish wear but no breaks or chips, and the delicate thread-like spun glass strands are intact with no damage. The dust you see on the black stripe has been carefully wiped away since the photos were taken.

Antique Red Swan In Tinsel Cradle German Glass Christmas Ornament
Beautiful late Victorian era (circa 1890s) blown glass swan Christmas ornament in a looped gold tinsel garland cradle. The bird is fairly large, almost 5 inches long by 3 inches high. The red and white original paint is worn as shown, and most of the inner mercury silvering has deteriorated due to age and air exposure. Including the tinsel, the ornament is 5-1/2 inches long.
Victorian Unsilvered Clip On Pink Rosebud Christmas Ornament
Beautiful late 1800s German blown glass Christmas ornament in the form of a flowering rose bud, 2-1/4 inches diameter by just over 3 inches high. It's unsilvered, coated in ground or powdered glass glitter with shaded coloring in pink and white. It's mounted on a tins spring clip, the top and coils of which are rusty, but the clip works properly. There is wear to the glitter finish as shown, otherwise it's in very good condition for being well over 100 years old.
Mercury Glass Rose Flower Feather Tree Christmas Ornaments
Four rare tiny rose or flower shape mercury silvered glass Christmas ornaments from the 1920s or 1930s, just over 3/4 of an inch diameter - feather tree size (I've shown a quarter in the first photo for scale). The pike openings are at the center backs, button style. The ornaments have a transparent overwash orange tinted coloring, which may have been red originally. They're in excellent condition with no breaks or damage. I suspect they were originally attached to wire or chenille stems and were later converted to Christmas ornaments. Attach to your tree branches with wire to better show the flower sides.
Box Shiny Brite Mica Stripes Unsilvered Christmas War Ornaments
This box of 12 unsilvered glass Christmas ornaments contains mostly Shiny Brite brand, produced during the 1940s World War II years. During that time silver nitrate was needed for military use and unavailable to ornament manufacturers, so for three or four Christmas seasons they used painted, flashed, and sprayed-on transparent and opaque colors without silvering. All of the Shiny Brite ornaments are round with colorful transparent horizontal stripes or bands, alternating with stripes of white or yellow colored mica glitter. They are 2 to 2-3/4 inches diameter. There are two smaller ornaments in pink and white mica with flecks of colored glitter - these do not have Shiny Brite caps, marked only Made In U.S.A. Several ornaments have wear to the mica glitter as shown. There are no chips or breaks. The plain manila ornament box has some storage wear, there is no lid.

I have two pairs available, price is for the set of two.

The 3 inch high ornaments are a puffed oval, pillow type shape with beading around the sides. The backs are decorated with a single embossed 6-petal flower. Two of the ornaments have a little cloudiness at the bottoms from age degradation of the inner silvering, otherwise they're in excellent condition. Excuse the terrible pictures.
Small 1930s Germany Red Santa Claus Glass Christmas Ornament
This circa 1930 small silvered glass Santa Claus ornament was made in Germany. It's feather tree size, only a bit over 2 inches high. Santa is painted all bright red except for his white eyes and the chartreuse green pine Christmas tree he holds in his arms. The ornament is in very good condition with little wear, no chips or breaks. Uncommon in this miniature size.
This 3-1/4 inch high silvered glass Santa ornament was probably made in Western Germany in the early to mid 1950s. Santa wears a dark red coat and holds a green pine tree in his arms. The fur trim at his hat and cuffs has remnants of worn white mica glitter. The back has a few minor scratches to the paint but the front looks fine.
1920s Feather Tree Wine Casket Barrel Glass Christmas Ornament
An unusual 1920s or earlier miniature glass Christmas ornament, the perfect size for an antique feather tree at 1-1/2 inches wide. It's in the form of a wine casket or barrel with very detailed staves and bands, a cluster of grapes and leaves in the front center (or possibly flowers) and a knot hole or plug in the center back. The color is a light chartreuse yellow-green. There are a couple of small dark spots on the back where the inner mercury silvering has degraded, and a shallow chip at the pike visible under the metal cap which is marked Germany (the cap fits securely).
Pink Shiny Brite Unsilvered War Era Double Stencil Christmas Ornament
A scarce and special 2-1/4 inch Shiny Brite 1940s Christmas ornament produced during World War II when ornament decorators and manufacturers could not obtain silvering agents due to military restrictions. It's painted transparent bright pink and was never silvered. What makes it unusual it the attractive double stenciled designs: distinctively different snowy village scenes on each side. Most war ornaments were decorated with stripes if at all, stenciled or screen printed scenes were much less common, and any Shiny Brite with different scenes on each side is fairly rare. The ornament also has a sprig of tinsel inside and is dusted with a few flakes of colored glitter. The metal cap is marked Shiny Brite Made In U.S.A. The ornament is in excellent condition - I can't find anything wrong with it other than some possible glitter loss. Two identical ornaments are available, price is for each.
Ardalt Porcelain Angel Bell Christmas Ornaments International Greetings
These three adorable little 1950s porcelain ceramic angel bells are Christmas ornaments, made in Japan by Ardalt. They're about 2-1/2 inches high, each holding a banner with Merry Christmas greetings in different languages - Swedish, German, and Polish. At their backs are signs reading In Swedish (or German, Polish) we say Merry Christmas . The angels have ceramic clappers inside and cord hangers. The Polish angel has a couple of scratches to the red paint of her dress, otherwise they're in good condition. I'm including an extra bonus Italian angel. From the front she displays fine but there's a chip to the lower back edge of her dress. It's been sealed with clear nail polish to prevent further damage.
Cotton Batting Santa Claus In Mica Canoe Christmas Ornament
This wonderful antique Christmas ornament features a molded composition or clay face Santa Claus figure riding in a mica glittered cardboard canoe. The Santa figure has a faded red suit made of cotton batting, a white cotton beard, and old cotton pipe cleaner chenille fur trim around his cap.The heavy, stiff cardboard canoe is 4-1/2 inches long, heavily encrusted in thick mica glitter. Crinkled thin gold wire is attached to each end for hanging on the tree. There are no labels or markings - this type of decoration was made in both Germany and Japan between the two World Wars, 1918 to mid 1930s. A similar ornament can be seen on page 148 of Robert Brenner's Christmas Revisited price guide book, but it doesn't state the country of origin. The canoe is in very good condition with no damage and very little mica loss. The Santa figure's black paper belt has some wear.

Someone took the clappers and hanging cords out of these six 1950s Japan porcelain ceramic singing choir boy Christmas ornaments, but I've added replacement metallic cord hangers since the pictures were taken. They can stand as they are like figurines or be hung from your tree. The adorable little choir boys are about 2-3/8 inches tall, each with a different hair color and his own special hand painted expression. There are a few tiny nicks or flakes to the red paint at the bottom, otherwise they're in excellent vintage condition.
This silvered glass angel on a cloud Christmas ornament has decal blue eyes and Dresden scrap style gold embossed paper wings. Her long curly hair is bright gold and her lips are painted red. Her arms are folded with one hand raised to her cheek. The ornament is 4-1/4 high and has an unmarked metal cap - it was probably made in 1980s West Germany or Czechoslovakia. The wings have a small piece of clear tape at the center back to keep them from flopping. Her nose and mouth look a little odd in the photo, but this is just due to shadows and reflections, they actually look quite normal and attractive.
Patriotic Stripes Unsilvered War Christmas Ornaments With Tinsel
Two unsilvered glass Christmas ornaments from the 1940s World War II era, patriotically decorated with transparent red and blue and painted white stripes. During the war, silver nitrate was needed for military use, so manufacturers made do with unsilvered decoration for the 1942 through 1945 Christmas seasons. Toward the end of the war, the metal shortage was critical enough that the manufacturers had to use paper or cardboard caps and hangers. One of the ornament has its original paper hanger, both have sprigs of silver tinsel inside. The ornaments are 2-1/4 inches diameter. There is some flaking and scratches to the white painted stripes of both ornaments and some mild wear to the transparent stripes of one, but no chips or breaks.
2 German Ribbed Ball Spike Finial Glass Christmas Ornaments
A pair of unusual silvered glass Christmas ornaments from Germany, 1920s to 1930s.

The ornaments are 3-3/4 to 4 inches high and in good condition, one has a pike chip visible just below the metal cap (the cap does fit securely).
4 West Germany Pastels Indent Glass Christmas Ornaments
Four large indented glass Christmas ornaments from Mid Century West Germany, all in pastel colors and nicely decorated. The largest is a 5 inch mint green round single indent with a spike finial at the bottom. The embossed star indent is tinted red, blue, and yellow and the opening is framed in a flower-petal scallop design of white mica glitter. White mica stars are scattered across the back. The gold teardrop ornament with white shooting stars decoration has large thumbprint flat indents on both sides. A snowy village church scene appears in the centers (both sides), done in Venetian dew type glitter, made of tiny beads of clear glass. The ornament is 4-3/4 high. The 4-3/4 green teardrop is also a double indent with 7 little stars formed in a flower shape, tinted pink, blue, and yellow. One side of the ornament has faded color and is nearly transparent from degradation of the inner silvering. The pink teardrop has a ribbed center indent tinted pink and white mica shooting star decoration. There once were white mica polka dots around the sides and back but the glitter has worn off, leaving small dots of silvering showing through the pink finish. All four ornaments are in very good vintage condition with no chips or breaks, with finish and silvering wear to the two as discussed above.
1930s German Mercury Glass Pinwheel Headlight Indent Christmas Ornament
This dramatic 1930s Germany mercury glass Christmas ornament has a blown glass pinwheel striped bulb in the center of the deeply recessed indent. The inside is highly silvered to reflect the painted red, yellow, and white glitter swirl stripes on the inner bulb in a kaleidoscope effect. The exterior outer rim is decorated with a wide band of white mica and clear glitter. I've seen this type of ornament described as headlight style. It has a pike at the back center and a clip-on wire hanger rather than the usual metal cap or hook. The ornament is 3-1/4 inches diameter and in wonderful condition with no damage, wear, or silvering loss - amazing considering the very thin glass and highly fragile construction. Best of all, it retains its original paper label printed Germany.
3 Hard Plastic Santa Claus Candy Container Christmas Ornaments

Made in the USA, probably by Rosbro / Rosen Plastics, they date to the late 1940s. The Santas about 3-1/2 inches tall, white with painted red suits and hats. They'll stand up by themselves or they can hang from the tree by their molded plastic loops at the tops. One Santa has a melt hole at the back from too-close contact with Christmas lights, otherwise they're in good vintage condition.

These three ornament size Christmas village buildings were made in Western Germany between 1947 and 1951. They're heavy painted cardboard, completely encrusted in mica and clear glitter.

They're about 5-1/2 inches high with cone dresses covered in pink moiré and velour gowns trimmed with gold braids and maroon velvet ribbon. Their hair is light pinkish colored fine yarn or string, their heads are painted fabric. The gold braid trim is beginning separating from the fabric in a couple of small areas, otherwise they're in very good vintage condition.

2 Antique Liquid Filled German Blown Glass Christmas Ornaments
A pair of rare almost paper thin double piked German mercury glass Christmas ornaments with liquid-filled blown glass bulbs in the deeply indented centers. This type of ornament was so fragile that few of them survived more than a few Christmas seasons, and most of those remaining lost their liquid long ago. Both of these however are still filled with the original oil or water (I'm not sure of the composition) in the center bulbs. The round ornament is about 2 inches diameter. The center liquid-filled glass bulb is painted with alternating white and pink stripes which create a kaleidoscopic effect when reflected off the back wall of the indent. The other ornament is a bit larger with a fancy scalloped rim and back. The center bulb has pink, white, and green stripes. There is some spotting and dust in the recessed centers. The inner mercury silvering has turned pearly white with age except at the backs. There are no chips or breaks.

Mercury Glass Wire Wrapped Egg Ornament With Mushrooms
A beautiful oval egg shape mercury silvered glass ornament lavishly wrapped in curly and coiled wire with attached composition mushrooms and feather greenery on both sides. It's about 3-1/2 inches high and in very nice condition with no broken or loose wires. Upon close inspection you can see a few minor spots of clouding to the silver from age and handling, nothing noticeable. Based on the well preserved condition I'm guessing it's West Germany made from the 1950s, possibly older.
German Pink Double Drop Hot Air Balloon Christmas Ornament
This antique German late Victorian glass Christmas ornament represents a hot air balloon with a dangling glass basket ornament hanging below. About 6 inches high overall, the balloon piece is ribbed and painted with green, pink, and yellow stripes in the ribs. The top and bottom are bright pink with thin white stripes. Inside is a piece of wired gold tinsel. The hanging feather tree ornament at the bottom is a cube or square with a wicker or basketweave type embossed design in pale green. The larger ornament is wrapped in gold wire-covered cording to represent the rope rigging of a hot air balloon. The ornaments have no silvering - I'm not sure if they were made that way (typical of Victorian ornaments), or if there was once inner mercury silvering that just degraded over the last 100 or more years. Though there would be no point to the tinsel sprig inside if the ornament had been silvered. There are no breaks or chips to the almost paper-thin glass but there is wear and fading to the paint and the ropes need to be repositioned.

A pair of early 1900s free blown glass French horn or trumpet Christmas ornaments, made in Germany. One is twisted above the bell, the spiral stripes painted with alternating red, white, and green. The other horn is an unusual split pea soup shade of unsilvered green. This horn makes a whistling sound when blown due to the nicer quality brass fitting inside the bell - the other one doesn't make much of a sound. Both ornaments have finish loss as shown, the twisted horn has lost much of the inner mercury silvering. The green horn was never silvered. Though this type of horn ornament was in production for many decades, the little bulges below the pikes and the black paint on the green horn are indications of their 100 or more year age. I added the metal caps for hanging as this type of ornament was originally intended to be hung with a loop of ribbon, string, or tinsel. Price is for the pair.
Some people call these 1930s German silvered glass Christmas bird ornaments turkeys, but to me they look like peacocks. They have flat stippled backs and are about 2-1/2 inches high. The silvering is still nice and reflective, but both have some finish wear to the paint as shown. The peacock on the left with the green body has a little chipping at the pike but it still hangs fine.
