My Grandmother had a ceramic Christmas tree just like this. I think of her every time I put mine out for the season. This tree is hand painted and highlighted. A single C7 bulb lights up over 50 colored lights and a clear star on top of the tree. An on/off switch is on the cord for easy control. The tree stands 16 inches with the star, and the base is 7.5 inches in diameter. Begin a family memory that you can share for years to come.
