Vintage Christmas Decorations

Aren't these beautiful? Vintage Christmas decorations from Shikasuki. They are just so gorgeous that I couldn't resist sharing them with you.

These are both 1960s US decorations: glass lantern style baubles with little angels and Christmas trees inside. They would look stunning both on a Christmas tree or suspended at varying heights in a window or archway.

These are Russian glass 3d pine cones in a rainbow of shades with glitter frosting. They are 1940s-50s from the Soviet era USSR and look fantastic grouped together in a bowl or vase as well as hung in the traditional fashion on a tree.

And no tree or mantelpiece is complete without an angel or fairy. These are 1940s feathered angels. Standing 8 inches tall they have porcelain heads and perfectly coiffed porcelain hair.

Prices from £3-£35. All from Shikasuki, 67 Gloucester Avenue, London, Nw1 8LD.


Re-published from the archives. We decorated our tree this afternoon and as I unwrapped my beautiful vintage bauble collection I wanted to re-share the information about obtaining them.

This is not a sponsored post. I paid for all my decorations myself, although I did use to help in the shop, which I was delighted to do, as Shikasuki is my absolute favourite vintage shop.

I love the Russian ones, so perfectly kitsch! The angels/fairies creep me out about though!

Diamond rings said...

Beautiful designs. Shopping for diamonds sight unseen can be difficult, especially when selecting a matching pair of loose diamonds for earrings.
