This week I'm focusing on an article I saw yesterday in a 2007 December issue of Country Living Magazine, about Shiny Brite Christmas ornaments. A popular favorite, still today!
They were made in the 1930's by Max Eckhrdt in New York. He teamed up with Corning Glass Co, in order to supply consumers with high quality mass produced glass ornaments. In 1939, F.W. Woolworth placed an order for 200,000 ornaments, helping to make Shiny Brite the leading company of hand painted glass tree ornaments. In the 1940's, the company moved to New Jersey. They continued to make them until the late 1960's.
