Shiny Brite Glass Ornaments

My mom is the thrifting queen! She found me all these boxes full of vintage Shiny Brite glass Christmas ornaments!

I love the colors and shapes. Note lurking photo bombing pug.

Shiny Brite ornaments were first produced in the 1940's in partnership with Corning Glass Company. Corning isn't too far from Rochester which makes me like them even more.

I love this one. It's pink and it has planets on it. Win win.

The funky shaped ones are great. And note the frosting.

I don't know how they made these indentation ornaments but I love them.

A mini tear drop intentation ornament!

Interesting fact: During WWII, since metal was needed for the war effort, the metal cap and loop on the ornaments was replaced with a cardboard tab you could tie a string to for hanging. I haven't found one yet, but I keep looking!

Today Shiny Brite ornaments are made by Christopher Radko. It's nice that they are still available.

Looks like I have another collection obsession!


  1. They are beautiful! I really love the wreaths you made from them.

    They inspire me to try something similar. Maybe next year.

  2. we have/had those EXACT ornaments on my trees when I was a kid. My mom still has them somewhere packed up. I love them! That pale blue one was always my fave....

  3. -I was a bit terrified at first place for my park but I was really relaxed after they transported those beautiful lawn equipments! Thumbs Up for!
