This is a rare old Christmas tree stand in wonderful condition for its age. The tin litho is decorated with two detailed scenes of Santa with his reindeer and sled delivering the Christmas packages. The metal cage and cast iron top look like they were originally red and someone painted it a shade of teal blue.An old bubble lamp light I had fit perfectly but I couldn't get it to light. My husband took it to a friend at Ace Hardware who said it was DC current making it quite old. The tin scene looks great, no dents, minor crazing and some scratches but considering it was used to hold a pine tree it looks remarkably good. Please see all photos to judge condition for yourself and ask if you need additional photos or have any questions.
14.5" wide at the base, 7.5" tall and 4 across at the opening for the tree Update, a nice ebayer messaged me to say this was from the late 1920's or 30's. He also said that all the bulbs needed to be in for it to light and if one burned out they all went out. Unfortunately I only have the one bulb so I can't test it.
