Have you discovered the Antique Christmas Tree Stands at Old World Accents, Richmond, Virginia's Year Round Christmas Shop? Visit our display of Antique Holiday Memorabilia.

A document dated 1604 is the earliest record of a Christmas tree stand: “Man pflegt drum ein vierekent Ramen zu machen.” The first stands were simple wood stands or crosses with a hole for the trunk. Sometimes people just put the trunk through a hole of a chair or a wheel fixed across a basket filled with water. Even baskets with wet sand were used to keep the tree fresh. In bad times, a turnip might be used to hold a tree.
