Silver Christmas Tree Tinsel - Old Style


A little of nostalgic throw back to the silver christmas tree tinsel of the 50's. 

Tinsel was originally made from extruded strands of silver. Because silver tarnishes quickly, other shiny metals were substituted. Before the 19th century, tinsel was used for adorning sculptures rather than Christmas trees. It was added to Christmas trees to enhance the flickering of the candles on the tree.
