Vintage Bradford Set Plastic Christmas Ornaments 1950s Came In Rare Early Box:
This sale is for one of the earliest sets of the "unbreakable" Bradford ornaments, probably later 1950s or early 1960s, set of 5 candles (with built in clips for the tree branch), 2 angels, and 3 choir boys.
I show the box, in one pic, that these were originally displayed in - from a previous set i listed - the box, shown, isnot included. I show the box because it is a very early Bradford "display box" (the kind for in-store-display where you fold the top up to show the logo, and can see the ornaments inside as well), and it demonstrates how early a set these ornaments are - possibly as early as the '50s, but certainly early 1960s.
If you look at all the Bradfords on right now you will see a bunch of boxes that have the, MAINLY,1970s logos and designs. This box was rare, and so the ornaments inside - i show it to illustrate how old these orns are. But, again, box is not included.
These plastic ornaments are in excellent condition - a beautiful set!!
A word about the choir boys: Where are their blue candles? The 4 boxed sets i purchased, and all of the loose ornaments that went w/ them, were part of 16 sets -in the box - all identical, at the sale where i purchased this group. Of all the choir boys in these 16 boxes, NOT ONE had the blue candle. And neither did any of the several loose ornaments on trays that were not in boxes that came w/ them. Not one had the blue candle.
I think, originally. they may have been sold w/o the candle - i mean, what are the chances that all had lost the candle, every one.. Anyway, these choir boys do not have the blue candle.
