These Wood Dowel Trees are fabulous for ornament display or to follow the old Pennsylvania Dutch tradition of hanging decorated cookies from the tree. Or make a great Family Tree display, with photo ornaments for each generation.
The simple but elegant design works with traditional, country, primitive or modern decor.
Our Wood Dowel Tree is based on the one seen on p. 11 of the 2019 Mooresville Mercantile Holiday Catalog. That original was made in 2002 by Robert Shaeff and sold through Early American Life magazine. We had such a wonderful response to the catalog photo and so many requests for the tree, that Bob gave us permission to reproduce his original design. Alex and Cate Schilloff of Athens, Alabama, accepted the challenge, carefully studied the ones we have and then created these trees for us.
