Christmas Unsilvered War Ornaments Opaque Primary StripesChristmas Unsilvered War Ornaments Opaque Primary Stripes

Three scarce American made 1940s unsilvered glass Christmas ornaments, produced during the World War II years when metal was rationed and silver nitrate was needed for the war effort. Rather than the usual transparent colored background finishes, these have unusual opaque painted backgrounds in bright primary colors of red, blue, and green. They're decorated with painted horizontal rings or stripes in pastel pink, yellow, blue, and white.

Two ornaments have their original paper caps and string hangers - also a result of wartime metal shortages. The red ornament has a string hanger attached to a bent bobby pin. There are a few scratches to the painted stripes, nothing major, otherwise the ornaments are in very good condition.
