These 2-5/8" silvered glass Christmas ornaments are beautiful. They have hand painted pink roses, rosebuds, and green leaves. You'll find one or two occasionally, rarely more than a couple, nestled in a box of older American made glass ornaments. I'm not sure who made them, but they apparently stopped being produced by the mid 1940s if not sooner, no doubt because they were so labor intensive to produce. They're somewhat scarce for USA made ornaments of this era and it's hard to gather a set of them.
The two ornaments are in good vintage condition with no breaks or chips, though there is a little spotting due to degradation of the inner silvering. The spotting looks much worse in the photo due to the reflections of various things in the room and the yellowish cast to the late afternoon light - the silver is actually very bright and reflective. The metal caps are marked "Made in U.S. of A." - the word "of" generally being associated with pre-1945 ornaments.
