Anne Frank Tree Chestnut.
Original Chestnut from the Anne Frank Tree preserved in glass paperweight. (Still sealed).
Through a window in the attic that was not blacked out, Anne could see the sky, birds and the chestnut tree. She wrote about the tree in her diary three times, the last time on 13 May 1944 (Quote from the Anne Frank House website)
Hidden away in their Secret Annex in Amsterdam during World War II, Anne Frank and her family could not breathe fresh air or see the blue sky for years. But through an attic window Anne could see the branches of a tall chestnut tree. This small glimpse of nature gave Anne hope and courage. It inspired her writing, which in turn, inspired the whole world.
This is one of a very few chestnuts that fell from the Anne Frank Tree that were saved before it was blown down by a storm in 2010. The item is dated 2007 and is preserved in solid glass as a paperweight to treasure forever.
Etched into the glass is a picture of the front of the house and also the words “Kastanje 2007. Anne Frankboom” (Chestnut 2007, Anne Frank House)
A beautiful and heavy object. Measuring 2 x 2 x 2 inches.
A Rare, Unique and very sort after item. 'One of a kind' in Mint Condition.
