1930s American Made Blown Glass Shapes Christmas Ornaments
These six silvered glass Christmas ornaments are not often found. They were made in the USA in the 1930s, probably by Premier Glass Works. American ornament manufacturers did not produce blown glass ornaments for long as they found it too labor intensive and costly. The hand painted decoration soon gave way to simpler, mostly machine-made design as well for the same reason.
The ornaments are 3-3/4 to 4-3/4 inches high. The shapes are variations of teardrops, one has vertical ribbed panels, resembling a hot air balloon or parachute. Two have hand painted comma stroke leaf decoration.
All six ornaments are in marvelous condition for being more than 75 years old. One solid hot pink ornament has some scratches to the finish. They're scarce and wonderful pieces of American Christmas history.
