Lametta Tinsel Icicles for Christmas Trees
Eis-Lametta ~ Brillant Eislametta - Weihnachts-Girlande
If you love the look of shimmering icicles on
your Christmas tree, our special offering of
vintage Eis-Lametta is a rare opportunity for
holiday enthusiasts. Dating from the 1980's
to the mid 1990's, these authentic old stock
tinsel icicles were produced by companies
in Germany and Austria.
Made by two family-owned companies that
are no longer in business, these traditional
metallic Lametta icicles were manufactured
in the same manner as the tinsel icicles that
decorated Christmas trees in the early years
of the 20th century.
These nostalgic, collectible metallic tinsel icicles are our
final inventory, and quantities are very limited.

'Eis-Lametta' Engelshaar
1980's West German Tinsel "Loop"
A truly rare collectible treasure from
the past, our old-time tinsel comes as
one coiled loop of super-fine Lametta!
A traditional Engelshaar, or "Angel's
Hair" style of tree tinsel, it was the
custom to drape onto tree branches
as is, or you can cut the tinsel loop
into strands of any desired length.
Authentic old stock samples that we
purchased from the manufacturer in
Western Germany back in the '80s,
this tinsel is at least 30-years-old.
Stored undisturbed in our archives,
they're in original, unused condition.
Made from real Leonische Lametta,
the silver is "guaranteed to tarnish."
Cardboard sleeve packages
are 3¾” wide by 10" high.

1990's German Swag Garland
Wow! We absolutely had no idea
that there were any more of these
older boxes of Christmas garlands...

some fabulous treasures! A great
garland for the tree, it's also a nice
trim to use for holiday decorating
or crafting Christmas ornaments.
Manufactured in Germany in the
'90s, this swag garland was made
using real silver plated Lametta
tinsel that will darken over time to
an aged, antique looking patina.
Package has one garland that
is 10 ft. long by 1" wide.
