I've decide that because these are plain I will not keep them, but hold out for some of the more decorative ones. Actually I am more partial to the fancier shaped glass and diorama glass ornaments. So this batch will be put up for sale in my shop.
I've learned a few things about Shiny Brite. The ones after WWII up until about 1960, have the crimped and stamped "Shiny Brite made in USA" on the caps. I'm still trying to sort out the cap issue on another box that says "Shiny Brite", because the caps are not crimped or stamped. So many questions!
I don't like to put things in my shop until I have thoroughly investigated their age, history etc. So there are a couple of boxes that may have to wait until next year before they go up for sale. This box and contents will be in my Etsy shop for sale today or in the near future.
My husband bought more plain ornaments which I will post later, but a few neat old German and Italian ones were included. The diorama of the church above is probably from Italy and dates from the 1940's. I haven't decided whether to sell the diorama ornament yet.
It was a blustery, cold day yesterday when I was working on this post. The kitties had been outside for awhile, just enough to get a bit chilly. They were very happy to get back in the house where it was warm.
There was a bit of a kerfuffle over who got to sleep on the cozy blanket in the corner of my office. Dot and Guy had a bit of fun. As you see, Guy won! When I noticed him sleeping there, he looked so cute, I had to get a picture. He was half asleep when I woke him up for the photo shoot.
I hope you all have a Bright and Shiny day too!
