These antique ornaments were used for my Christmas tree: five wonderful miniatures glass with beautiful detailed molding, twenty-five electric light bulbs in milk glass hand painted (1), many glass balls, one cardboard bell with mica, and the little red horse in hard plastic.

Nice collection.

A bowl full of memories...:)

Wow! Just came across this past post by Martha Rubell and was admiring her beautiful milk glass Christmas light bulbs! When I checked out the website, I discovered these additional photos and descriptions. Amazing! Thanks Martha!!

Japanese milk glass Christmas light bulbs

The bulbs made in Japan were milk glass, which showed less flaws than the earlier clear glass. Japanese bulb production ended in the 1940s and resumed again briefly in the 1950s. Most of the bulbs of this era are clearly marked, although not generally dated.
