vintage chenille bottle brush feather Christmas tree 5 ft pink rare 20's 30's Description
******NO RETURNS ON THIS ITEM***** so please ask all questions before offerding.
This is a vintage to antique large chenille bottlebrush branched pink Christmas tree. This is extremely unusual and very very rare. Iwill do my best to describe however a comparable item has not been found so my words are anhonest description of what Isee, know, and don'tknow. First, the height isapproximately 60 to 65" (5 to 5.5 foot) tall without a stand. The stand is not included.Next, the color is a shade of pinkwith white.The pink sometimes looks a little salmon depending onthe lighting in the room. Sometimes it lookspinker thanothers.The tree is old so thewhite will notbe pristine or stark white. Picture 19 is the best color and shape representation. I have been told by serious collectors that they have only ever seen this sort of tree in a green color and never this pink before. The material of the branches is what feels to me like a softer bottle brush with various lengths of fibers.These are not stiff and prickly butare soft. The tree has been reinforced over the years with pink electrical or masking tape and a bit of black tape. There have been repairs with a dowel stick at one point to strengthen the tip of the tree. I don't know what the treelooked like at its birth or how much has changed and I don't know what structural supportis beneath it all. Thistree has a floppylook andis not at all straightand strong. It has a distinct charm exactly because ofthe floppy whimsical form. It has been stored ina clean, smoke free and pet freeenvironment for at least the last 20 years so it has no offensive odors. You willlikely need to add tape when youput this tree up. I haveused lights andvintage ornamentsthe 2 years I used thistree and got constantcompliments from everyone.Irescued this tree years ago in theold Victorian Village neighborhood in Columbus Ohio where it had been gracing the massive attic of a grand old home in the historic Victorian Village neighborhood. My instinct is to call this a "feather" tree but it is really not a lot like a feather tree. Or I could call it a bottle brush tree but again, it is not at all like the bottle brush trees you will find in a search. Theage of the tree from talking withwhom I acquired the tree along with other sketchy research will put this about 1910 to 1935.The origin isquite possibly German butcannot be guaranteed. Iwould love to hear from anyoneout there that has more definative information on thisamazing vintage Christmas tree. It is quite a mystery.I don't normally set a reserve price but I am very torn about selling this as I truly love it!I will likely keep this if it fails tosell at this sale. Please no returns so ask all questions and enlarge and look closely at pictures before offerding.Shipping willrequire an oversized long box sointernational buyers please know that shipping is only an estimate until theitem is boxedand taken to the post officefor the exact postage costs. Your first invoice comes automatically andmay have shipping that is not sufficient. Only the tree will be shipped to you. Ornaments, stand, and lights are not included.

Terms of SaleIf you are buying vintage items please expect minor flaws typical from use or age. Vintage has character and patina that will make it unlike a brand new modern intem. I try to describe any major issues or flaws but may not find every tiny flaw. Colors, fabrics, and such are described to my best ability but our opinions may differ. I only describe things how I see them and would never mislead a customer on purpose. If you are looking for items to be in mint pristine condition then vintage may not be suited to you. Finding a tiny spot or a loose seam that was not mentioned or other insignificant details is not a reason for returns. Unless I describe the item as mint condition it is not. In the unusual event of a RETURN the buyer will pay return shipping fees and refunds will only be issued when the item is received by me in the same condition it was sent to you in- and a RESTOCKING FEE of $10 will be accessed. Thank you. DSR's or Detailed Seller Ratings are very important to me as I strive to provide a postive shopping experience for my customers. I put 5 star effort into my work and hope to recieve the 5 ***** rating from you. Please contact me with any issues so that I may have the opportunity to best serve you. * Most of my items are vintage and probably used. Unless I claim the item is "mint" then please expect minor imperfections or signs of age. I try very hard to examine everything but I could miss something minor. Returns are accepted only on items that were seriously misrepresented and that would only occur if I simply missed something major or mistakenly described an item. I attempt to describe all aspects of the things I sell and I take several pictures to give you accurate information. Clothing for the most part is not returnable unless I was far off on my measurements or failed to describe a major issue. I want you to contact me with as many questions as you have for an item before offerding and I will do my best to answer them. Please refer to the shipping details for further terms of sale.
