A pair of scarce Shiny Brite unsilvered glass futuristic shape Christmas ornaments, made during the World War II years when almost all metal, including silvering agents, were needed for military use.
The 2-3/4 inch high ornaments look like space capsules or stylized lanterns. The tops are painted transparent red and green respectively, with thin bands of paint and transparent color around the middle rings. Sprigs of shiny silver feather tinsel inside add sparkle. Both ornaments are in excellent condition with little if any wear to the finish and no chips or breaks.
