$4.2 million for Christmas tree
$4.2 million for Christmas tree? This one’s made of gold, and Disney characters
In Tokyo, for people who seeks a glow to their Christmas this year, a jewelry store in downtown Tokyo has just the answer: a pure gold revolving “tree” covered in Disney characters such as Mickey Mouse, Tinker Bell and Cinderella.
The tree-like ornament is made of 88 pounds of pure gold, standing nearly 8 feet high and 3 feet in diameter. It is decorated with pure gold-plate silhouette cutouts of 50 popular Disney characters and draped with ribbons made of gold leaf.
The price tag? A mere 350 million yen ($4.2 million).
