~ Create a beautiful, vintage holiday! 1960s Vintage *LEAD TINSEL ICICLES 3 Packages , UNUSED Condition National Tinsel Mfg. Co.

* * * * * ~ Ice your tree the old fashioned way ~ Lead tinsel is so different from the type that's made today. Lead is heavy yet very delicate and if pulled on, it breaks apart. This is shimmering tinsel and it really looks like icicles dangling from the tree, beautifully reflecting the light.

The cellophane sleeves are showing some shelf wear and tears along several of the edges . ~ The icicles themselves are in excellent condition; unused. * Just take the card of tinsel, give it a gentle shake and hang the icicles... one by one.

This type of tinsel was often saved after use It was carefully tied in bundles with cotton string or placed back on its inner card after frosting each holiday.
