A Spectacular 16" Spanbaum with Bird Feeder Nestled Inside Its Branches

Posted on December 05, 2015 | 0 Comments

We have added to our ever popular Wood-Shaved Trees - Spanbaum - with this very special 16" tree with a bird feeder nestled inside its branches. 

Meticulously hand-crafted in the Erzgebirge, Germany, they have many names - Spanbaum, span trees, wood shaved trees, chip or chipped trees, twilled trees, and curled trees. They were first created by Spanbaumstecherei (carvers of Spanbaum trees) in the 1930s and are created with the wood of a linden tree - the trunk lathed, and then each branch carved from that trunk, curl by curl.

Tall and sturdy - this 16" beauty is a must for your Folk Art collection!
