Five blown glass Christmas ornaments in fluted cone and drop shapes, made in America in the mid to late 1930s, probably by Premier Glass Works. Blown glass ornament production in this country was virtually abandoned by the start of the second World War, by which time the manufacturers realized machine made ornaments were far less labor intensive and costly to make.
The ornaments are mostly variations of teardrop, parachute, and hot air balloon shapes, measuring 3-1/2 to 4-1/2 inches high. All but one have recessed vertical ribs on the lower sections. Two have hand painted comma-stroke flower decoration. All have metal caps marked Made In U.S. of A. The ornaments are in very nice condition with no finish wear or silvering loss.
