1950's Double Glo Christmas Icicles Tinsel for Decorating Christmas Trees (in box)
CONDITION: Authentic vintage item in original box. Tinsel was in good condition.
DESCRIPTION: This vintage box of extra long Doubl-Glo Icicles are much heavier than aluminum and so durable that it survived many Christmases since the 1930's! Patented in 1935, this green and red box shows Santa Claus peeking through a wreath covered window. The box is in good condition with bright colors and minimal wear. There is a small bit of wear on the box end closures and box. The icicles are in excellent condition and I imagined them to feel like aluminum foil, but they are quite heavy. The tin foil looking, shiny and sparkly icicles are also fireproof!
These beautiful Christmas tree decorations were made by the Paper Novelty Manufacturing Company of New York. The last two pics show how they could complete a retro, Mid Century (MCM), or vintage christmas look with these silver tinsel icicles.
