This is a rare 1930-40 Bulach of Switzerland, glass and aluminum tree stand with brass screws. This tree stand weighs just under 8 lbs! The super heavy emerald green glass is just under 1/2 thick. This was made to LAST!There is a large chip at the bottle neck top, but it does not affect the function of this tree stand at all. The glass has 3 raised "ribs" that circle the belly. You can also see a few swirls, straw-marks and bubbles in the glass from manufacture. These just add to the charm and character of this antique piece! This has been cleaned and looks absolutely amazing with a tree in it. The glass base seems to glow when reflecting the Holidays lights! This could also be used as a vase for fresh or dry flowers or greenery! The tree stand is 7" tall, with a 4" diameter top on the glass base x 10 diameter at the base belly. This will hold up to a 2-12 diameter tree trunk.
The metal tree holder insert is made of very durable thick aluminum and has 2 (original) heavy brass screws with hand tightening ends that hold on just below the lip of the glass base neck and three (original) screws with T ends that tighten onto the tree to straighten it and hold it in place. The inner bottom of the metal tree holder has a "spike" that grips the cut end of the tree to secure it.This entire metal piece lifts out of the glass when the 3 lower screws are release to make it very easy to clean the glass inside if needed. This is very rare and is in great condition for the vintage! The item "Vintage 1930-40 GLASS Aluminum CHRISTMAS TREE STAND Bulach Switzerland Green" is in sale since Friday, April 17, 2015.
