Oh boy a new improved program for uploading a post. Seems to work well especially the photo uploader.
Anyway this was my first vintage ornament I picked up this year. It's a little cloth covered wreath 9"across with a plastic candle typical for decorations of the 1950s and 1960s. A nice touch for this piece is that the cord is wrapped in fabric so one spared having to look at a tacky plastic cord dangling down.
This has the original box which is nothing much to look upon but as a toy collector I like to have the boxes.
M ore exciting Christmas decorations coming up!

    Be careful with that red light bulb that's in it fort -- *that* also looks to be vintage 1950's to me?!! (maybe original to the decoration, even?) I'm pretty sure similar bulbs are still made (or at least available) but no longer with that nifty 'flame' pattern to the glass. LOVE the red cloth-covered cord w/bakelite plug too!! <applause>

    Thank you very much Ben. The new category selector seems to work well too. Not sure how to select a 2nd category will work.

    Thank you very much AnythingObscure. The buld would be difficult to replace. Will take great care of it.
