One dozen larger 1940s glass Christmas ornaments from the 1940s World War II years in a classic Shiny Brite Uncle Sam and Santa box. They are about 2-3/4 to 3 inches diameter, all but one decorated with colorful mica glitter and painted stripes or rings. Some are Shiny Brites, all were made between 1942 and 1945 when silvering agents were needed for military use and ornament manufacturers had to use non-metallic finishes for their ornaments.
The set has a nice assortment of transparent colors. War ornaments tend to have a lot of finish wear, flaking, or scratches and some do have a little, but nothing severe. None have any chips or breaks. The Shiny Brite box bottom is intact but the lid is only in fair condition with split flaps held together with tape.
