This is a nice little tree that would be ideal as a desk ornament. It's quite small - about 10 inches, so doesn't take up too much room. It is made out of wire, so it's a lot sturdier that some tree ornaments and the tiny lights wrap around the frame. The tree is connected to a seperate battery unit, which is a shame because it would look so much better if the batteries were hidden. However, it is very pretty and adds a lovely festive touch.
