Christmas Topper Germany Vintage-30s NRA Noma Light Box

Here are 2 vintage Christmas items. One is a glass Christmas ornament for the tree top or end of branch. It's a long hollow spire measuring 10". It's silver with red, blue and white designs, plus added white textured snow. There's a paper label affixed to the bottom section that reads: Germany. We purchased it from an estate sale in this vintage Shiny Brite box which pictures the same type of ornament on the lid but says Made in Western Germany on the side. The original price tag is on the box: 29 cents from Binks. Both ornament and box are in very good condition.

The other is a Noma box: "Strings of Color-Light All Year 'Round For All Celebrations" copyrighted 1929, with pictures of not only the expected lights on the Christmas tree but also the unexpected lights held aloft by Uncle Same on the 4th of July, and those surrounding a black cat, jack-o-lantern, and witchy skeleton thing on Halloween. I guess they wanted to find as many occasions as possible to sell their lights... but we know that only the Christmas thing ever really caught on :-) There are no lights in the box but the 1933-1935 box is neat to find in such good condition. Even the inside is interesting. Top inside "Noma Decorative Outfits with Mazda Lamps" and it goes on to give all the good things you should know, guarantee, and directions with the bad things you should know ie if one bulb goes out the rest won't light either... now it will take you half an hour to try a new bulb in every socket and what if that one doesn't work either? The NRA Eagle stamped inside the box shows that Noma supported the National Recovery Act... in force from 1933 through 1935 when the Supreme Court found it to be unconstitutional. This is a neat item... especially if you have the old lights but no box to display them in. 11" x 6" x 1.5". Back 2 corner seams on lid are torn along the seam; inside has some roughness where the lights were put in and out of their proper slots but it's really in very good condition especially when considering that it's probably 73-75 years old.
