Since an antique ceramic Christmas tree is vintage decor, you are likely to find them in used condition. These little trees are pretty hardy, though, and can offer years of holiday cheer. Although the condition will vary from seller to seller, each seller often puts the condition of the tree alongside the description. You should find descriptions like "excellent" or "used." Any defects, such as slight chipping or missing bulbs, are often noted, too.Are spare lights available for a vintage ceramic Christmas tree?
If you need some spare lights for your ceramic Christmas tree, you can find these on eBay as well. Ceramic Christmas tree lights come in small and large packs and a wide range of colors, so whether you only need to replace a few missing bulbs or you want to change the entire look of your tree, there are lots of options for you to choose from.
Lights for these ceramic Christmas trees are plain plastic or acrylic bulbs that are inserted into the tree “branches.” A small bulb inside the tree sends light through them, creating the appearance of the many small bulbs being lit up. Your antique ceramic Christmas tree also probably had a star that fits into the top of the tree.
Ceramic Christmas tree lights come in sizes ranging from small to extra large. You can find a variety of shapes and designs, too. Here are some of the most common lights for sale.
- Original twist bulbs in clear, multicolored assortments and single-colored packages
- Round globe bulbs in assorted or single colors and clear
- Specialty shapes include birds, poinsettias, star bursts, and others
