color wheel
 FOR ALUMINUM CHRISTMAS TREES
 for sale

 
If you have an Aluminum Christmas, this is the first and a MUST HAVE accessory you need. Since you should not string electric lights on Aluminum Christmas trees, a Rotating Color Wheel is the traditional and best way to light it.
For maximum viewing pleasure order one of our
color wheels. The color wheel lenses are Green, Blue, Red and Orange. It is designed for up to a 60 watt Halogen Spot / Flood* light (not included).
There is an On / Off switch on the AC cord. While one is great, 2 gets both sides, and 3 is crazy colorful. Yeah, Baby!
 
NEW COLOR WHEEL

 Normally
$79.99 when ordered separately

SORRY, BUT NOW COMPLETELY SOLD OUT

$54.99 when ordered with a tree!

* Color Wheels have always been designed since their inception in the 50's, to work with Spot or Flood type bulbs.
Standard light bulbs are "omni-directional" and will be very ineffective as a light source when used in a color wheel.
When choosing bulbs, purchase small to medium diameter bulbs. The largest body bulbs will not fit unless you also purchase
base extensions. The new LED bulbs work great and fit well, generating far less heat and using many times less electricity.
Also, they are essentially built in the same manor they have been built in since the late 1950's. Some of the originals were metal, and some plastic. They all had plastic color wheels, that will melt / distort if exposed to excessive heat. This is usually caused by a wheel that has it's rotation impeded by something against it or because it get's knocked over. The motors while small looking do last many, many years. Again, they are using the same design and technology they were using in the 1950's, and I have lots of originals that are still working, so while the new one's are not made in the US, the new one's should last similarly.

Beautiful original, vintage
6' aluminum 'Sparkler' "Pom-Pom" Christmas Tree with 94 branches.  This is an original late 1950's tree with "Pom-Pom" / Fountain style branches.
Includes 94 branches
and aluminum tripod stand. Looks great.   A very nice medium-large display tree. Very shiny!


Of the original vintage style Aluminum trees, "Pom-Pom's" are the most desired. We have had 20-30, "original" vintage trees over the past 4 years and this is the best example we have had in both original quality and current condition. It comes with it's original box which is in incredible condition.  The box still has all it's original paper storage sleeves, which are in near NEW condition and even has the original paperwork. The labeling on the box is still perfectly legible. Even the original store price tag is still intact. The branches, stand and trunk are all in excellent condition as well. The needles are all holding great! The trunk has no breaks or repairs and the original stand is perfect as well. Even though the box and paper work list the tree as having 91 branches, this one has 94 and all with matching sleeves.  The tree measures 40" across its widest point at the bottom.  This tree in pristine condition and needed no repairs (unlike almost all the rest of the "original" trees we have had). A hard to find treasure!

Beautiful original, vintage
6' aluminum 'Sparkler' "Pom-Pom" Christmas Tree with 89 branches (originally came with 91. There are no unfilled holes that we can find, so are thinking the two missing were spares). This is an original late 1950's early 1960's tree with "Pom-Pom" / Fountain style branches.
Includes 89 branches
and aluminum tripod stand. Looks great. A very nice medium-large display tree. Very shiny!

The trunk has no breaks or repairs and although the original stand is a bit "unorthodox" in it's design and assembly, it is perfect as well. The tree measures 40" across its widest point at the bottom.  This tree in great condition and the only issue is a slightly worn hole where the trunk locating pin fits. It's slightly wobbly, but that could be addressed with some tape around the metal pin. We'll leave that to the new owner if they wish. It stands just fine as-is. A hard to find treasure!
