Extremely rare red, white and blue blown glass garland perfect for your patriotic Christmas tree.

Origin: Germany, 1920s. Condition: most silvering is worn away; about half of the pikes have some chipping. Size: 27" long.

Excellent vintage celluloid Christmas light in the form of Santa Claus carrying a pack of toys. Celluloid lights are very difficult to find because they were so brittle and flamable. They were made ca. 1915-25.

This one is in remarkable condition, in virtually mint condition. There are no splits, dents, burns or melts! The 3.5 volt bulb tests as non-working with a continuity tester (celluloid lights should never be tested with a 9-v battery). 3-3/4" tall.

This is as nice an example as you will ever find of a rare celluloid light!
