Molded glass holiday or Christmas ornament. Ball, small, translucent, iridescent blue. Metal cap with thin bent metal wire loop and thin bent wire hook attached at top. Cap is stamped: "JAPAN". In 1937, a tariff decision (no. 54387) reversed earlier decisions regarding the marking of ornaments with their country of origin, established in the 1890 MicKinley Tariff Act and the Smoot-Havley Tariff Act of 1930. The ornament itself now had to be marked with with its country of origin by stamping it into the cap or by way of tag or sticker.
