dreamy Nikon lenses

Good morning!
Some of you are quite knowledgeable on lenses. Do you know of a Nikon 35mm lens that would have been in use in, say, the 40's, that produced really dreamy, glowy images?

The slides I have are from the 40's to the 70's and there is a major difference in lens between earlier and later. Or was it the film? I pulled apart one of the glass slides and it is Kodak "safety" film.
