The replicas available are pretty sad so I decided to make my own out of vintage 1940’s parts.

Are those vintage C7s? C9s?

Edit. Not a very good pic, but here's my tree this year. It's got some really cool lights I found at Target. They are red, green, and pearly white little bulbs. I just love the effect. Can't get the picture to work. I give up.

Ya the solid color bulbs always seemed MUCH hotter than the clear colored ones we had on our xmas tree(s) growing up.

As I recall,Borjis,you couldn't leave them on too long.Back then most people had real trees so you had a double threat with your tree drying out and your bulbs heating up.

Funny enough, we actually had a fake tree growing up. I always thought it was the best tree ever until we did a fresh cut noble fir 10 years later.
IIRC the solid ones had a reflector at the base to keep the heat away from other sources.
