Item for your consideration is a 6-1/2 or 78 German goose feather tree. It is in impeccable condition- only had one owner and I obtained it from them. It has 17 levels or layers of branches and the width at its fullest is 4 feet. It comes in the original box from May Company Department Store in Cleveland Ohio and from what i can tell the postmark is 1948. The color is exquisite- a deep rich green- almost like new.
The red berries on the ends of the branches are intact but have lost their lacquer finish over the years. The branches are very tight and strong- which is uncommon of trees of this age. No loose or weak branches. There is several branch tips (under 5) where the feather has detached- I included a photo of the worst one. The bark or trunk wrapping is in excellent condition and fully intact.In over 40 years of collecting christmas i have never seen an example in such amazing shape and the size is beyond extremely rare. I obtained this tree from the estate of the original owner and was told by her daughter that she never put the tree up as far back as she could remember - and the daughter is 72. More photos available upon request. Please keep an eye out for my other listings of antique and vintage Christmas decor and such. Thank you and have a great holiday. Photos have been taken in natural and artificial light.
