Christmas Decor in Mobile Homes: Mid-Century Style
David Izenman uses an aluminum tree to decorate his 1955 Fleetwood. It’s all mid-century magnificent.
Make It Mid-Century’s recent newsletter was about aluminum trees:
The original aluminum Christmas tree was a commercial product invented and marketed to stores for their displays in 1957 by Modern Coatings out of Chicago. These original trees were out of the price range of the average American, retailing for $100 or more. The tale goes that a few employees of Aluminum Specialty Company from Manitowac, Wisconsin, saw one of these trees at a local department store and decided that a smaller, less-costly version could be designed and marketed to the mid-century family; which, at this point in history, was fascinated by all-things futuristic.
Aluminum Specialty Company filed its patent in July of 1959 and began to sell its artificial aluminum tree by Christmas of the same year. (Patent number 2,893,149 to be exact). The Evergleam was born.
I hope you enjoyed all the beautiful Christmas decor in mobile homes. It’s been a pleasure collecting all the images and getting a little peek into all the homes.
I hope you have a great Christmas and a Happy Holiday season. May all your wishes come true!
