This wonderful vintage letter holder tree with clips is made of metal and features a cherub holding up the umbrella shaped "tree". The piece is made of metal that was cast in parts (you can see the seams in places) and then was colored a gold/bronze/brass color. There is a lovely aged patina to the piece. This would be perfect for a wedding or for daily decor with a touch of romance.

There are six "branches" on the letter holder, each with a metal alligator clip. The clips are stamped "Mueller Elec. Co. 60 series Cleveland, O USA". The cherub base of the piece does not have a maker's mark. There is old felt on the bottom, probably the original, and it has a hole in the middle and is coming loose on one side--but felt is easy to replace if you wish to do so. The branches aren't all at exactly the same height, one is a bit higher arched than the others, which I tried to show in the pictures.

This measures just under 16" tall; the base is 3.25" wide; and the "branches" form an umbrella that is 9" diameter.

The tree twists off the base for easy storage. I will be packaging it in two parts to help protect it during shipping, so you will just need to twist it back together once you receive it.

I will pack this very securely and send with insurance and delivery confirmation.

If you have any questions or would like to see more pictures let me know!


I refund shipping that is $1 or more overcharged!
