Hi Maria,
Yes, it is a tulle treen. My grandmother made several in the early 60's that my family used for years. I made this on as a tribute to my grandmother who I loved very much and miss terribly.
Thank you for sharing the advirtisment; I have never seen that.

I remember those, too. And wreaths made out of the same stuff or nylon net. Good memories.
