Vintage Aluminum Christmas Tree

 

An aluminum Christmas tree is a type of artificial Christmas tree that was popular in the United States from 1958 until about the mid 1960s. As its name suggests, the tree is made of aluminum, featuring foil needles and illumination from below if used with a rotating color wheel. The aluminum Christmas tree was used as a symbol of the commercialization of Christmas in the highly acclaimed and successful 1965 television special, A Charlie Brown Christmas, which discredited its suitability as a holiday decoration. These trees have also appeared in museum collections which range into the thousands.
