This is a very rare find of 5 Glass Christmas Ornaments that say "USSR Occupied Germany" on the caps. The ornaments are orange and have no silver coating inside. The box is stamped "Germany U.S.S.R. Occupied. I have only the bottom of the box. The ornaments are about 2.5 inches tall.
There is normal wear consistent with age and use.
Ironstone Platter, 19th Century
The platter is decorated with blue polychrome and has images of cherry blossoms and pomegranates.
The platter has the registry mark of August 27, 1879 and is in good condition. There is very little wear to the glaze and there are just a few small chips at the edges, far fewer than expected for a platter of this age.
