6 Shiny Brite Unsilvered Glass Mica Christmas War Ornaments
These six smaller Shiny Brite unsilvered glass Christmas ornaments were made during World War II when silver nitrate was available only for military use. Between 1942 and 1945, American ornament manufacturers and decorators had to substitute transparent or opaque painted, flashed, and sprayed decoration for the more typical silvered finishes.
The round ornaments are mostly 1-3/4 inches diameter, one is a bit larger at 2 inches. The torpedo shape is just under 2-1/2 inches high. All have transparent painted rings or stripes alternating with bands of mica glitter. The mica is quite worn on all but one ornament. There are no chips or breaks.
