Strawberry Shortcake Christmas Ornament 1984 Silk Ball Tree Decoration
This vintage Strawberry Shortcake Christmas tree ornament is a white silk ball with a plastic sleeve around it that features Strawberry Shortcake and her friends painting candy canes. The sleeve is clear and says "Treat yourself to a happy holiday."
The ornament features Strawberry Shortcake and Custard holding a candy cane, Orange Blossom painting the candy cane, Cherry Cuddler helping Huckleberry Pie hold another candy cane while he paints it, and Raspberry Tart holding up the other end Apricot and Hopsalot are bringing some red paint and Apricot holds a paintbrush.
The ornament has a loop at the top for hanging. The hook is a little loose, as shown in the 4th photo, but since the ornament is made of styrofoam inside, it's very lightweight. The white silk shows some yellowing from age, as shown in the last photo, and there are a few dents here and there, but the ornament is otherwise in good condition.
The plastic sleeve is marked "Strawberry Shortcake,MCMLXXXIV American Greetings Corp." The Roman Numeral is for the year 1984.
- Length from top of loop to bottom of ornament: 3 1/4 inches (8.3 cm)
