Non veni pacem mittere, sed gladium.
We had those too. They were sturdy - lasted forever.
Still have a few of those. Some of the 'silver' ones have tarnish spots on them, but we still put them on the tree!
About 1/2 our tree are old glass ornaments. When mom passes (not anytime soon I hope) I'll have enough if those for 2 trees would be my guess. The wife and I both love them. Riley
My parents owned a nursery/gift store when I was a kid and they went all out at Christmas. I would spend hours bringing all manner of these glass ornaments from storage to put out for sale. We still hang them on our tree every year and some still even have the old price tags on them. Great memory trigger CW!
