|There was a time when taking a ceramics class was quite in vogue among young housewives. I remember in the 70’s when my mother took ceramics and brought home corn-shaped casserole dishes and frog pencil holders.|
|Ceramic Christmas trees are decorated and painted by hand, and are often glazed. They typically will feature glass jewels. These glass jewels will glow when the tree is turned on, as they often are hollow with a light bulb inside.|
|I found mine at yard sales for less than $10. You can definitely find them on ebay.|
The rarer and more collectible trees, which often date from the 1940s, are always attractively colored and glazed, and usually individually numbered. These can cost from $150 upwards.
If you’re feeling nostalgic, keep your eyes open for a vintage ceramic Christmas tree of your own!
