Vintage Christmas Trees

Natural spruce Christmas trees were by far the favorites of yesteryear, and many different tree stands were designed to hold them. Antique Christmas tree stands can still be found, and lend a nostalgic touch to a modern tree.

But real Christmas trees have their disadvantages. Among the earliest artificial trees were the delicate Victorian feather trees.

As the years passed, artifical trees were made to look increasingly lifelike - with the exception of the fun, retro "bottle brush" Christmas trees and Della Robbia trees and weathes of the mid-20th century!

Occasionally you may be able to find unique and creative homemade trees, handcrafted of wood, wire, or other materials, dating from Victorian times to the present.
