Tree starts spinning after about 15 minutes - Heat from the lightbulb warms the mechanism which then spins. Came with a red 25W bulb. It wont spin for me with that bulb.
It must not get hot enough. I will include a clear 40 W bulb which gets it spinning nicely after about 15 minutes. Some staining, and a few rips in the paper cone.Overall, great condition considering it is almost 70 years old. Any questions, please do ask!
