Gorgeous vintage Christmas tree pin brooch with multi color crystal rhinestone baguette "candles" and golden citrine color rhinestone flames on a green rhinestone Christmas tree with pink, golden citrine color, silver and clear Aurora Borealis "ornaments". This beautiful Christmas tree pin is pictured on Page 15 of Nancy Trowbridge's, "O' Christmas Tree" and it simply doesn't do this beauty justice.
This tree is slightly curved with all-prong set, very high quality rhinestones to create this amazing confection in gold tone metal. This is a magnificent Christmas tree pin with a golden colored rhinestone treetop "star" and the golden flames truly glowing against the colors and rich gold tone make the whole effect simply mesmerizing. There is a green baguette rhinestone cleverly forming the central tree trunk and light topaz color rhinestones as the base of the tree.
It measures aproximately 1-3/4 x 1-1/4" and has a safety closure. It is signed, "Made in Austria" along the trunk of the tree in a lozenge-shaped signature plaque applied to the reverse of the trunk of the tree. It is in Excellent Condition.
The dating on this beautiful Austrian Christmas tree pin is unclear, but Nancy's book was published in 2002, so we know it is at least that old and probably appeared in someone's collection before that. Swarovski crystal is located in Austria and we think the rhinestones in this beautiful Christmas tree pin are of the highest quality crystal which is easy to see if one were to put this one next to others. The baguettes are even more expensive as they are considered fancy cuts.
This is a Christmas tree pin that we think will delight any collector and become a valued piece to wear and collect. A keeper!
