In 1926, a group of decorative-lighting companies merged to create the National Outfit Manufacturers Assoc. in New York City. NOMA became the largest decorative Christmas lighting company in the United States. It distributed other holiday items such as this 1950s tree stand. It is made of colorful lithographed tin.
