Vintage 1956 Gold Spincraft Heirloom Rotating Musical Christmas Tree Stand with Original Box.

This tree was manufactured by Spincraft, Inc. 4122 West State Street, Milwaukee 8, Wisconsin. The patent number dates to 1956. This stand is a bright and shiny gold.
There are light scratches on it. There are 3 electrical outlets on the stand base for plugging in your Christmas lights. Tested each outlet and they work.The water reservoir has a very nice gold color. It looks like it had never been used for a real tree. It is very heavy and sturdy. It holds up to a 100+ pound tree.
Either a real or artificial tree. It has a Bakelite control box with three switches that turns on the lights, rotates the tree, and plays Christmas music. The imported Swiss music box (pictured) plays two short Christmas songs: Jingle Bells and Silent Night.
The sound runs smooth and in tune. This stand has been tested and mechanically everything is working perfectly. The power cord with the control box is long and in excellent condition; flexible & not brittle.No frayed or exposed wires. The Bakelite control box works and looks like new. I opened up the bottom of the stand and lubricated the areas recommended in the instruction book. The belt is in good condition showing no wear or splits.
