Box of Twelve Shiny Brite Ornaments. 1950s. Max Eckardt, Importer. American-made
In 1937, Max Eckardt established Shiny Brite ornaments, working with the Corning Glass company to mass-produce glass Christmas ornaments. Eckardt had been importing hand-blown glass balls from Germany since around 1907, but had the foresight to anticipate a disruption in his supply from the upcoming war. Corning adapted their process for making light bulbs to making clear glass ornaments, which were then shipped to Eckardt's factories to be decorated by hand.
These particular ornaments were marketed in the mid-1950s. They were not popular at first, as the West German ornaments seemed so much more detailed, lighter, and much more detailed. However, our sense of patriotism quickly took hold, and we were so proud to use AMERICAN MADE ornaments.
Silvered inside, and that is still very strong and all the ornaments which are silvered.
Various shapes and colors.. a really nice assortment in the original box.
Each ornament is from 2.00 to 2.75" in size, and in very good condition.
