Christmas trees of your dreams
26 November 2016 – 12 February 2017
For a long time the Christmas tree was a simple gift giving tree for children, decorated only with apples, nuts and pastries. Within just a few decades at the beginning of the 20th century, it transformed into an aesthetic showpiece for adults. The exuberant and extravagantly decorated Christmas tree became a decorative piece that could be used to impress guests. Your dreams beckon with the three feather Christmas trees with exquisite and rare Christmas decoration from times gone by. With Dresden cardboard figures, Sebnitz cotton wool, Victorian jewellery, glass, mica and glitter – just as it was back then.
