Vintage 50s 4-pk Christmas Tree Twinklers Ornaments 'perpetual Motion' Spinners For Sale
PLEASE SCROLL FOR LARGER DETAIL PHOTOS! Amazing! Vintage 1950s "Christmas TREE TWINKLERS" GLITTERY BIRD CAGE / CAROUSEL ORNAMENTS "It Flashes * It Whirls" It's Perpetual Motion" 4-PACK In Original Box One box of 4 vintage Christmas tree ornaments from the 1950s! They look like tiny carousels, or perhaps bird cages. Made by the Twinkle Toy Co., Youngstown 12, Ohio. It was hard for me to capture the glittery, sparkly nature of the ornaments with my digital camera. MUCH prettier in real life! The ornaments are made of brightly-colored translucent plastic, embedded with glitter. (Two are bright pinkish-red, one is turquoise-blue, and one is chartreuse-green.) Each contain a tin spinner of contrasting color. The idea is to place them on your holiday tree branches directly above the lights, and the heat from the bulbs make the spinners twirl & sparkle! (Even though most of us don't use those old hot bulbs any longer, I find they twirl and spin at the slightest motion or breeze, and they really catch & reflect light. Absolutely stunning!) Each ornament is 3" tall x 2-1/4" in diameter. In good vintage / used condition. As you can see in the photos below, some have a tiny bit of melting to the plastic on bottom from being placed too close to those old hot bulbs, and one of the pinkish-red ones has some old artificial snow on it. Overall they look really gorgeous, though, and you don't really notice the flaws once they're on the tree! Comes in the original box for storage. The instructions are on top. Made by the TWINKLE TOY CO., DIVISION OF PLAKIE TOY CO., YOUNGSTOWN 12, OHIO. From the box: "It flashes * It whirls * It's perpetual motion" ~ Ornaments That Spin... Watch By The Hour.. Children Love Them... Spangly, Sparkly Twinklers" A wonderful addition to your retro holiday decor, and a must-have for the collector of vintage Christmas ornaments or mid-century items!
