Fluffy White Snow Ceramic Christmas Tree 11 Inch Tall All Clear Lights
This ceramic Christmas tree has fluffy white snow on the tips of the branches and crystal clear lights. This electric lighted ceramic Christmas tree is 11 1/2 inches tall including the stand and finished in a beautiful deep green art glaze. This tree is decorated with clear flame style lights and topped with a clear star that has a glow when the tree light is on. The ornaments are secured to the tree with a water base glue, the star is shipped with the tree, on arrival you will need to insert the star.
This ceramic tree is two separate pieces - the tree rests on a stand and is easy to set up. The stand is wired with a UL approved electric light fixture. The tree is wired so you can leave it plugged in and switch it on whenever you want using a rotating dial-style switch located on the cord. The tree will arrive complete with a 15 watt tapered light bulb. All bases are wired with a UL approved light fixture and plug that is standard for electrical systems used the USA. Light bulbs sent with the tree are for USA electrical systems as well.
This tree is made of earthenware ceramic slip cast from a vintage mold and kiln fired two times. The first firing brings the raw clay to bisque, the second firing is to mature the glaze. The glaze used on this tree is a gloss green art glaze. The art glaze is applied to mature bisque using a brush. Glaze applied with a brush is more durable than glaze that is sprayed on. This green art glaze is a glaze that produces more than a single-colored, smooth finish. After the brushed on green art glaze is dry another specialty snow over glaze is added. When the tree is fired in the kiln the second time both glazes mature, the green glaze becomes rich and glossy, the specialty snow over glaze resembles the fluffy snow on the branch tips. The snow is applied randomly on each branch so keep in mind each tree is slightly different from the one in the photo.
I'd like to mention that fired snow glaze will not change color or yellow, it costs a little more and takes more time to complete however the look lasts a lifetime. I have found trees made with snow that is not kiln fired are acrylic base, this type of snow can flake off over time and change color and yellow.
The total height of this tree is 11 1/2 inches, it includes:
* The tree section measures approximately 7.75 inches tall and 6 3/4 inches wide.
* The stand is 2 inches tall x 5 inches wide at the bottom.
* The star is 2 inches tall.
This tree will arrive ready for you to set up and enjoy in the years to come. Also available in assorted sizes.
