My Aunt said they are depression ornaments. a couple are very thin plastic. They are in pretty bad condition but I thought it was fun to see.

    These are all about from 50's era . There are no hand blown early ones in box that are highly collectible and bring higher prices , Yours have a value about 20.00 dollars . They are pretty and we know most are shiny Brite so I think this is solved :)

    A lot of nice pinks - these are also highly collectible - there's something gorgeous about the colours back then that can't be made in today's ornaments (or maybe it's the patina)

    Thanks again I would like to clean them and use them on the mantel but I'm afraid to put anything on them.

    Nice ornaments. Dont use water or any liquid cleaners TO CLEAN THESE BEAUTIES. Most were made with water based paints.
