This Christmas Tree was made by my Grandmother Charlene and i was with her when she made it. It has Char incised in the base and bottom of the tree. The base has the HM hallmark, but i can't find it on the bottom of the tree.These are a matched pair though and made at the same time. Please see pictures of the Char on both the base, and tree bottom. There are only (3) small bites around the opening of the tree bottom. You can't see them when the tree is on the base.
