That's one of those old King Cole Christmas trees that calls for the careful use of real candles and a pipe, and a bowl, and a little fiddling. Really love that King Cole Christmas Tree smell, don't you?

PS: Just before you call the guy, hang it upside down from the rafters in a cool, dark, dry place for a bit. That will preserve the color. Your wife might want to keep it, if the color is well preserved.
