This is an original set of Peerless Shooting Star Bubbling Christmas holiday lights with its original box, made between 1949 and 1955. There are 7 bulbs on the string and all of the bulbs are working (a couple take longer to warm up and bubble than do others--up to 5 minutes).The string includes the following bulb colors: one green; one white; one yellow; two blue and two red. The bulbs are the C-7 candelabra Christmas tree size, and fit into Bakelite plastic sockets that feature permanent metal clips for attaching to tree branches.
The wires are red and green and are in great condition and flexible (no brittleness or breaks). The string has an end that has a receiving plug to add additional strings of lights in sequence. Please note these are the bubble lights with the standard, Noma-style tubes with bubbles that bubble up continuously in one direction. These are not the tubes with two liquids and bubbles that go up and then back down.The set does show some wear due to age, use and storage, including some discoloration on a few of the bulb bases from heat over time. Also, one bulb base is missing its metal tree clip, a couple of the glass tubes need to be re-glued to the color bases and one of the blue bases has a chip missing from part of its base (first blue bulb from the left in the photos). The box shows wear including some tears, and the top has been separated completely from the bottom. The box still has the original holder insert and the graphics on the top, sides and back of the box are legible. Please carefully review the multiple photos for more details.
