    I got a very old feather tree at an auction. It was in its original wooden box so I did not see its condition. Oh dear. I found the correct feathers to repair it, but what a job!

    I am still working on it. I spend several hours a day. I am on the bottom tier now. I think it is harder to repair one than to start from scratch. Not sure I am even doing it correctly! After I get the feathers all wired on, I will need to dye or paint them to match the original. The new feathers are working well. The trunk is hand-shaped not a dowel, so that might help to date it. The branches are wired on, not attached into drilled holes. The box says Sears Roebuck.
