The man said it was his grandmother's.A UNIQUE PIECE; SIMILAR PIECE (palm tree) spotted on website DesignAddict.com, priced at 4000 euro. Some small efflorescent spots on back of couple of the fronds need to be treated. I am attempting to assemble the entire tree. The latest postings are of the trunk, fully assembled. It is over 8 feet tall without the fronds inserted. The first picture is with the top large fronds inserted, making it about 12 feet tall. I was not able to insert the smaller fronds as it is difficult for me to do by myself.
