Upside Down Tree
This 7-foot upside-down pre-lit Christmas tree evokes a 12th century Central European tradition of hanging a tree from the ceiling at Christmas, this unique fir is inverted to ensure a smaller footprint for less-spacious areas, and allowing more room for the accumulation of presents underneath. Originally designed for specialty stores to display delicate ornaments using a minimum of floor space, the unusual tapering shape allows the tree to stand in places that do not accommodate a traditional holiday tree.
I have to find the photos that I took in the Amana Colonies, because a Christmas shop there had made their own tree on the ceiling and I was completely enamored and wanted one. I still plan to have one of those someday. But not like this. This is just weird.
It's sold throughHAMMACHER SCHLEMMER, but sorry they are out of stock.
