Calling all vintage ceramic Christmas tree owners! These table Christmas trees are back in trend and the proof is everywhere: retailers like Amazon and Walmart are stocked with modern variations of these delicate beauties. But it's the older models available on Etsy that are the most popular and could be worth some serious money.
So what's wrong with these ceramic decorations - and why have people made so much fuss about them for so many decades? Here we are going to share everything you need to know, as well as suggestions on which ones to buy.
To start with, it is important to know the story of the pretty characters. Believe it or not, the trees first appeared on the scene in the 1940s, but didn't really gain popularity until the 1970s. They were first (at least officially) designed by Atlantic Molds, but most of the vintage models you can find at flea markets or online sellers are from Nowell's. Nowadays, many people collect them and give them to family members.
Nowadays, you can also find styles of different colors, sizes and designs. New ones are usually battery operated, while antique ones light up with a power cord.
And if you don't already own one of these beauties, note that you don't have to go the store-bought route! Many collectors used to make their own with pre-made ceramic trees - and so can you today. There are tons of DIY kits out there (especially on Etsy) that you can use to paint your own heirloom that can be cherished for generations.
Wondering what to do with one of these treasures once you find it in your home? First, we recommend spicing it up a little (pun very intentional!). With replacement bulbs and new logs, you can easily make it look happy and bright again. Talk about a Christmas miracle!
Whether you are on your way to sell one or buy one, one thing is certain: you will make Grandma very proud!
