Vintage Shiny Brite Christmas Ornaments

Shiny Brite, an American maker of Christmas ornaments since the 1940's, had a full line of ornaments that are very collectible, made during the Great Depression. Shiny Brite ornaments included Christmas bells which were made from Corning glass that was lacquered and hand painted. During World War II, materials to make some of the ornament designs were restricted, and Corning and Shiny Brite had to change some of the designs in order to use less metal oxide pigment.

The name Shiny Brite, came from the silvering of the inside of the ornaments to make them shiny brightger.

Vintage and Antique Glass Christmas Ornaments Bells

Many of the antique Christmas ornaments that were made in Europe, especially Germany, were made from handmade or hand blown glass. Other materials did not come into fashion until much later, when they were more readily available and less expensive than the European glass.

Antique and vintage Christmas bell ornaments made from glass have held up well through the years because glass does not tarnish or rust, and is easy to clean. The knowledge and skill to create beautifully colored glass is one that comes from generations of glass blowers, so that the vintage Christmas glass bells are truly beautiful, and do a spectacular job of reflecting the lights on a Christmas tree.

Vintage Porcelain Christmas Bell Ornaments

Porcelain is one of the more fragile materials that Christmas ornaments have been made of, so if you can find antique or vintage Christmas ornaments made from porcelain, scoop them up quickly. Porcelain has the unique quality of being able to be painted, and most of the vintage ornaments were painted by hand, making each ornament a one of a kind item.

Porcelain Christmas bell ornaments are often figurines of Santa Claus or other Christmas characters as well as being bells. Or they also may be painted with Christmas scenes.

Vintage Metal Christmas Ornaments Bells

If you want your Christmas bell ornaments to really chime, then metal ornaments are the best to buy. Look for vintage metal Christmas bells that are made to be musical. Then the bells will chime a specific note or series of notes if they are in a group. This sound will be very pleasing to your ears during the Christmas season.

Metal Christmas bell ornaments can also be just for decoration, not for sound, and if so they will not have a clapper inside them to make the bell ring.

Whatever type of vintage Christmas ornament you are looking for to decorate your vintage Christmas tree, Ebay is the best place to look. Ebay sellers have many beautiful vintage and antique collectible Christmas ornaments that can be part of your family's Christmas holiday traditions.
