Mom's Christmas Tree Jewels ~ Memory Count Down ~ Day 16

ca ~ 1960's?

I have been trying to research mom's (1933~2010) Christmas tree ornaments . . . this one I could not find, not even close. Just by the design, I am guessing the 1960's  but it could be earlier . . . just not sure. It's the only one in mom's collection but I do remember there being more. Many of mom's ornaments are of the Shiny Brite brand both from Germany and USA.  I am hoping to find more history on this ornament. 

~ Happy Holidays! ~


  1. My guess would also be the 60s - that yellow and orange combination was very popular then.

  2. Beautiful ornament. I am thoroughly enjoying the tour of your tree!

  3. Thank you, Liz, I'm learning so much about mom's ornaments as I post each day! The history of ornaments is very interesting. Lots of neat ones on eBay too. Glad your enjoying the tour!

    Greta, thank you, I thought the same about the colors and the design, very 60's-ish!
