Fabulous early, rare aqua blue and silver Shiny Brite Christmas ornament with spire, made in West Germany for Max Eckardt & Sons, Inc., New York.

This is a wonderful vintage blown mercury glass Shiny Brite tree topper, made in Germany in the mid to late 1940s before the company was based in the U.S.A. where the majority of Shiny Brite ornaments were later made. It is in excellent vintage condition and comes with the original box which is also in great condition.

This beautiful and delicate ornament measures 9.75 inches tall and consists of a bright aqua blue ball (rare mercury color) topped with a tall silver spire. There is wavy mica decoration on the blue globe that is still intact, with a bit of very light age related wear. The vintage blown glass is rather thin and fine, which is typical of this age. The glass is in mint condition with no chips or cracks.

The box measures 10.25 inches x 2.25 x 2 and shows only slight corner wear. It has an original hand written price at the top. The box is printed with the Shiny Brite logo and text:

Shiny Brite, registered
Glass Christmas Tree Ornaments
Max Eckhardt & Sons, Inc. New York City
Made in Western Germany

What a great find . . . a very early Shiny Brite German blown glass tree topper with its original box. Wow!
