Vintage Tabletop Ceramic Trees
Like holiday traditions, there are a few holiday decorations that withstand the test of time. My childhood Christmas memories always include my grandmother’s illuminated green ceramic Christmas tree. In the 60s and 70s these ceramic trees became extremely popular.
Most of the trees, like my grandmother’s from that time, were painted by hand. Local ceramic shops sold the trees unpainted and people would host parties and paint them. A single bulb at the base of the tree lit all of the individual Christmas bulbs. Each of the colorful light bulbs were removable. This was my favorite part. My grandmother’s sweet tree is now proudly displayed at my mother’s house during the holidays and continues to bring a smile to my face.
