All standard leaves are die cut from .020″ leaded brass engraving stock. They are shipped pre-installed to the acrylic tree tops using 4/40 X 3/16″ brass round head machine screws. When Saxton attaches the leaves to the acrylic top, the clear protective sheeting is removed from each leaf. If we pre-ship the leaves for engraving, the clear sheeting will be left on the leaves for protection.

Saxton does provide engraving for these products.

Helpful Hints

  • All leaves and the plates for the stones are made from leaded yellow brass with a clear, protective lacquered finish. Once they are engraved, an oxidizing solution may be used to turn the copy black.
  • Handle leaves carefully when removing or replacing from the tree top. To prevent scratching, wrap each leaf separately, allowing no contact with other leaves.
  • Silver colored aluminum leaves and copper leaves are also available in .020″ material. Different material colors (brass, silver and copper) can be used to designate different levels of giving. In addition, other colors and metals are available by special quotation.
