A scarce boxed set of one dozen circa 1954 Twinklers Christmas spinner ornaments. They're motion activated by the heat from tree light bulbs (you hang them over or below a bulb), making the metal pinwheel piece inside spin and twirl. The plastic neon pink, blue, and chartreuse yellow glittered bird cage or carousel shaped spinners are about 3 inches tall. They have no chips or cracks, though two have slight distortion on the scalloped bottom edge from contact with a hot light bulb (last photo). There are four of each color.
The box has some wear and a taped corner. I believe the lid had a perforated pop-out that is missing. The spinner ornaments were made in the USA by Tinkle Toy Company of Youngstown Ohio and guaranteed vintage.
Specializing in antique and vintage Christmas all year round, plus antique to Mid-Century copper.
