* sold out for 2012 - check back next holiday season! *
This listing is for a Moravian Star tree topper. The star is made to order and customized with either clear or colored glass.
A Moravian star is an illuminated decoration, originating from Germany. There are many forms of Moravian stars, but the most commonly seen is the 26-point version, which consists of 8 smaller and 18 larger points. To make this star usable as a tree topper I have removed one of the larger points from the design, allowing for the top of the tree to be inserted inside the star.
The star itself will measure approximately 10.5" in diameter across the longest part.
I only make one or two in this style each holiday season.
