Starburst Finial Tree Topper

Mercury Row®

Made of plastic, this starburst finial tree topper is finished with silver or champagne glitter. Each stem is attached to a center point with springs so the dabra dances with movement. The tree topper is 16" tall and 14" wide. 

$39.99 $59.99

Designer Advice:

If your tree stands on a rotating base, you'll notice a gentle movement in the tree topper due to the spring construction. The delicate nature of this finial dabra needs to be carefully stored when not in use. Each stem folds down to create one long column. Keep the original shipping sleeve, or get one that measures 20" long by 5" wide.

Buying Guide

Finial tree toppers are decorative, crowning ornaments placed at the top of a Christmas tree. These colorful tree toppers appear to look like exclamation points and are usually made of glass.

The first finial tree topper appeared at the end of the 19th century. German-made, these hand-blown glass finials soon became the most popular tree toppers at Christmas time, even surpassing angels and stars.

The common crystal design includes an extended fragile point at the top and beautifully combined colors throughout. Many contain motifs of differing designs, including leaves. Vintage examples, however, are solid colors like silver and appear as stacked, indented spheres on top of one another.

Finial tree toppers can match your decor by using a similar color scheme, being made out of the same material, or even by having similar shapes incorporated into it. For example, if you have a constellation theme in your living room, a glittery star as your finial can tie in to what you already have while accentuating your Christmas theme. More minimalist versions might be shapes made of natural wood, and more art deco versions might be glittery gold or silver. Check to see what themes already exist in your home’s decorations before purchasing your finial tree topper to help craft a cohesive look.
