Vintage Kugels

I thought I would show you my vintage kugel collection.

I have two cobalt blue and one lime green that are 3 1/2" in diameter. Two smaller gold ones.

And 15 matching 2 1/2" silver ones! All of them are Estate Sale finds purchased over the last 25 years.

Kugels are heavier than regular glass Christmas ornaments and have a different kind of top for the hanger. {Enlarge the photos to get a better look at the tops. This is something that is important if you are looking for vintage kugels which can be expensive.}

  1. Your kugels are so wonderful Joan... one day I will find another one! Love to you... Bisous... Julie Marie

  2. I have never heard the term Kugel, but I do have several of them. I love the heft of them - very pretty. Thanks for the history. And thanks for hosting VCM - it's been fun!

  3. So pretty and colorful! I had never heard them called that but will keep an eye out for them at Estate Sales that I visit! Have a great weekend!

  4. aaaaah, my heart just skipped a beat when I saw the 15 matching silver ones. These are so rare and hard to find. I only have 5 and they are all grapes. I am very jealous. Lucky you! All the best, Lori

  5. Hi Joan!
    I have never found a vintage kugel in all my hunts, but I have bought some new ones at Home Goods. I absoulutely love them. I found some mercury glass ones, but I don't think their vintage.
    Anyway, you have a lovely collection!

  6. Oh, those are lovely indeed. I have never seen those before nor have I heard the name.
    Interesting, I have a thought that maybe those would be found in areas where we had a great deal of German immigrants..
    We don't have too much of the older things here in Oklahoma, we only became a state in 1907, so we are behind in the ornament wars....grin!!!

  7. I had never heard of this ornament before, but will certainly look for them from now on. Thank you for all the information. Yours are just gorgeous..

  8. OOOOoooo! Those colors! Have a cozy weekend..are you due for snow too?

  9. I too have some old, vintage kugels and they are my favorite part of decorating for Christmas. I love when I pull them out of the box and get to display them once again! Happy Holidays. Take care.

  10. Hi Joan,
    I absolutely love your silver kugels, and the cobalt blue one is gorgeous. Have a great weekend.

  11. Love the blue and green! These are so pretty...I'll be on the lookout now!


  12. Joan, your kugels are wonderful. I have a few shaped like grape clusters and also some in the shape of a heart and the simple balls. They are beautiful pieces, but heavy on the tree. ~ Sarah

  13. I am working on a post tonight for my huge Christmas balls!! I love them! Love yours!
