Evergleam 7' Silver Aluminum Christmas Tree


Pix1: Evergleam 7' Silver Aluminum Christmas Tree Evergleam 7' Silver Aluminum Christmas Tree

This is an Evergleam Deluxe Stainless Steel Aluminum Tree, US Pat. 2,893,149 (Can. Pat. 585,663).
Advertising on the box reads:

  • Each branch ready to insert in trunk.
  • Sets-up and stores away in minutes.
  • Non-inflammable (the safety tree).
Made by the Aluminum Specialty Co. in Manitowoc, WI.

Mom bought this Christmas tree when aluminum trees first became popular and it was our family Christmas tree for several years. The 1968 photo (Pix 1) shows my youngest sister holding an angel up to the tree.

Pix 2: Evergleam 7' Silver Aluminum Christmas TreeTo assemble the tree, each 28 branch is inserted into a two-piece trunk. The assembled, tree stands 7 ft. tall and has 100 branches. Although the box looks like it's been through the war, (Pix 2) the tree itself is in great condition. It was my older brother's job to disassemble the tree each year and pack it away, and he took his job very seriously. The tree was taken down and packed away very carefully! Each branch (Pix 3) was inserted into a paper sleeve then placed in the box. (Pix 4) The tree stand is missing, but the trunk will fit into a standard tree stand.
