I had some good luck at a garage sale. I peeked into a box of old ornaments and found five made in Poland Ornamants. Polish Ornaments are glass and hand painted. They were imported into the United States probably in the 1950’s.
They weren’t marked…so I asked. 25 cents each…well alrighty then! Should I tell her thay are worth much more than that? Nope…I am keeping my big mouth shut. A fair value is somewhere between 6 and 10 dollars each.
See how Poland is stamped on the cap? That is how you tell it is what collectors call a polish. These five were probably part of a set of twelve. The seller stated that they were ornaments her son and his wife wanted to get rid of.
Polish ornaments are cousins of Shiny Brites.
One of the ornaments was a Shiny Brite…it is called a Stripe.
These are not old they are new, but for 10 cents each they came home with me.
Here you can see how small they are compared to the polish.
It was a good day going to garage sales throughout the city of Menahga.
