Rare Periwinkle Blue / Purple Twinkler Spinner Ornament in MINT condition* * * Here is a rare opportunity to own the hard to find Periwinkle / Purple color Vintage Twinkler OrnamentSpinner Twinkler Christmas Tree Ornaments were made by the Tinkle Toy company in the 1950s. The complete set of 4 colors manufactured by Tinkle Toy at that time included:1) the pink (orange-ish) twinkler
2) the yellow twinkler
3) the aqua (turquoise) twinkler
4) and the very rare periwinkle blue/purple color. Fewer than 5% of the original ornaments found for sale these days are this color.This Twinkler ornament is in excellent vintage condition, with no cracks, breaks, melts or obvious scuffs. The color is quite bright and beautiful and the clear 'window' is pretty much blemish free. The spinner twirls freely. Zoom is helpful to see the great condition of this wonderful ornament.The vintage Twinkler ornaments have flecks of glitter embedded in the hard plastic, and measure appx. 3" tall. They are sometimes also called Carousel Ornaments, Birdcage Ornaments or Spinner Ornaments. When they were placed on Christmas trees above the hot, lighted Christmas bulbs during the 1950s and 60s, the heat would rise, turning the metal spinner. The brightly colored metal spinner would 'whirl and flash" - the cooler lights made during current times do not generate enough heat to turn the spinner, but they also do not melt the ornaments.Thanks For Looking

[ * * * A good way to tell whether your Twinkler / Spinner is truly VINTAGE: The original 4 colors of Twinklers were made from a slightly translucent plastic, and have colored spinners (red, gold, royal blue). When you zoom in on the photos, you can see the spinners through the sides of the ornaments. The newer spinners (manufactured by Dept. 56) come in gold, red, green and also bright green, blue and purple - but the colors are completely solid. They are made to look very similar to the original Twinklers with the glitter, etc. But the spinners are (from the best I can tell) always SILVER and the color has a slightly 'metallic' look to it. Hope that helps * * * ]
