1920s Antique Japan Mercury Glass Christmas Ornaments Lot, 7 Vintage Round Hand Painted Glass Japan Ornaments
Lovely lot of very early Japan glass Christmas ornaments featuring bright colors over silver! Circa 1920s-1930s.
There are seven round mercury glass sphere ornaments, each with their signature short pike and flat metal caps which are stamped “Japan”. Three are solid and four have simple linear and floral decoration.
Three measure 2 inches wide: solid red, solid gold, and silver with linear globe pattern. (The red ornament still retains a cotton cord hanging loop from the period, nice!)
One measures 1.75 inches wide: red with floral pattern
One measures 1.5 inches wide: another solid red
Two measure 1.25 inches wide: blue with a snowflake pattern, and light green with a floral pattern.
These are quite old, at the earliest stages of the Japan Christmas ornament era. All show age related light wear and paint loss which adds to their period charm.
What a nice set of antique Japan mercury glass Christmas ornaments, a great addition to any Japan ornament collection. A great value sold as a lot, must $4.00 per ornament!
