In the 1970's, it was all about the colors and the lights! This gold star tree-topper flickered red, gold, and green from a revolving light behind a pebbled-glass lens.
As the light inside the faceted globe turned around, it made colorful shapes and patterns on the wall (similar to the last picture above). It was like a 'disco-ball' for your Christmas Tree! And, of course, it topped the everlasting fake tree: After all, it was the era of plastic and polyester... Merry 70's Christmas!!
