FEATHER TREE CANDLEHOLDERS

Vintage Christmas Tree Decor

A precursor to the electric string of lights, the custom of lighting candles on a tree goes back to 18th century Germany in upper-class homes.
Early candles were glued with melted wax to a tree branch or attached by pins. Around 1890, candleholders were first used. -wikipedia

We don't encourage lighting these candles today, but unlit, they are still a good representation of just how important the Christmas holidays was to generations past.
