I TRY TO GIVE SUGGESTIONS ON DIFFERENT WAYS TO USE THESE ITEMS TO MAKE THEM FUNCTIONAL AS WELL AS EYE CATCHING. I GET MANY COMPLIMENTS ON THE DIFFERENT USES I HAVE FOR DIFFERENT ANTIQUES. AS WITH ALL MY VINTAGE AND ANTIQUE ITEMS IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR SOMETHING THAT IS NEW YOU MAY WANT TO LOOK ELSEWHERE. THIS IS A VINTAGE GERMAN CHRISTMAS TREE STAND.
I USE THESE IN SEVERAL DIFFERENT WAYS. I USE THEM OBVIOUSLY FOR MY TREE.
THEN SOMETIMES I HAVE MADE A TABLE DISPLAY USING THE CHRISTMAS TREE STANDS AS CANDLE HOLDERS, I GOT MANY COMPLIMENTS ON THAT. I HAVE USED THEM FOR FLAG STANDS INSTEAD OF USING A FLAG POLE.
I HAVE USED MY LARGE ONE FOR AN UMBRELLA HOLDER ON MY PATIO. THIS ONE PROBABLY DATES TO 1960'S OR OLDER. GREEN CAST IRON TREE STAND.DECORATIVE PATTERN ON THE METAL. 6 1/2" X 6 1/2" SQUARE. THE SCREWS MOVE RELATIVELY EASY. CHECK MY OTHER AUCTIONS FOR MORE DECORATIVE ANTIQUES. The item "VINTAGE GERMAN CHRISTMAS TREE STAND" is in sale since Tuesday, June 26, 2012.
