The Unicorn Tree Topper is totally handmade. I glue paper onto substantial copper sheet and then draw the unicorn freehand. Then I saw the entire unicorn out with a jewellers saw, the teeth of which are so fine, I need triple magnifiers just to see which way they go. In places I need to drill the copper so I can get the saw blade in to make the cuts. Then the shape is filed by hand to smooth the edges, and finally hammered into a wooden stump to give it form. The tree toppers have a length of tube on the back to slide over the top of your tree, where it will be quite secure. This also enables them to be placed on a hook if you wish to display it all year round. Each one is one of a kind. Made with love in Scotland. 19.5x36x7cm (7.75"x14"x2.75"). Gift boxed.

 

This is what the label on the box says:

 

This Unicorn Tree Topper is inspired by the Lady and the Unicorn Tapestries in the Cluny Museum in Paris and the Unicorn Tapestries in the Cloisters in NYC. Symbol of purity, the Unicorn is also part of the Scottish Royal Coat of Arms and of the United Kingdom Royal Coat of Arms. Made entirely by hand from copper in Scotland by Carrie Fertig.
