These four small Shiny Brite unsilvered 1940s Christmas ornaments are painted in rare unusual color combinations of bright Pepto Bismol pink, medium blue, and ivory or off-white stripes and bands. They were produced during World War II, made without silvering agents due to military rationing and shortages.
This stacked or stepped rings Art Deco style lantern shape was discontinued by the end of the war. The ornaments are 2-1/4 inches high. Two have a "bad" side and a good side, where there is noticeable paint loss to the center pink stripes on one side only (second photo). The other sides are fine however, and the other two ornaments have little if any paint wear. Very scarce and unusual examples of American war ornaments.
