$48.00

SOLD


OMG! Spectacular, super rare unsilvered red barrel wartime Christmas ornament, featuring the even rarer green mica stripes! In excellent condition. Wow!

This is a very hard to find vintage USA blown glass wartime ornament featuring the ribbed ring barrel or lantern shape, circa 1941-1945. The ornament is bright red overall, with alternating hand painted green mica and white mica stripes. You rarely find vintage ornaments with green mica! The bottom comes to a shaped lobed point. The original smooth metal cap has scalloped edges and is imprinted Made in USA on the top. It is likely made by Corning, who were early U.S. glass ornament manufacturers. It measures 2.25 inches tall to the top of the cap and is in excellent, perfect condition. Amazing for its age!

This is a wonderful vintage USA WWII unsilvered red glass barrel lantern Christmas ornament, a must-have for any unsilvered ornament collector!

SIDE NOTE: Metallic mercury glass ornaments get their shine from being coated on their interior with a silver nitrate solution. In 1941, WWII wartime shortages restricted this material, and ornaments during this time frame were produced without silvering. Since unsilvered ornaments were less popular than the shiny mercury glass, they are harder to find and thus more collectible.
