Remember decorating the Christmas tree with your Mom? She opened the large cardboard cartons that held the ornaments in storage. Inside were boxes of thin cardboard and cellophane windows, usually torn and with holes here and there. Peeking out from behind the windows were the Shiny Brite ornaments, already glittering and they weren't even on the tree yet! The dreams the Shiny Brite ornaments represent to us today! Sugar plums!
This is a box of 12 large size balls in solid colors. Each ball measures approximately 2 1/2" across. All are in very nice condition. The box is in good condition, with anticipated wear to the cardboard. Miraculously, the cellophane is in very good condition. There are a couple of tape pieces reinforcing the box. The balls show very limited wear, mostly in dust and mild "attic surface" on the paint. No broken ornaments, no cracks or chips; no fading of color. All ornaments in this box are solid color with no decoration, mica, glitter or paint.
The set is from Max Eckardt & Sons, 1107 Broadway, N.Y. 10, N.Y. The box is 11" X 8.5" X 2.5". From a local home, the woman that owned these just passed away this spring at the age of 102. She cared for her things and packed all her belongings properly, so they are all in nice condition.
