Vintage Eisenberg Christmas Tree Pin Brooch Conical Glass
Vintage Eisenberg Conical Glass and Rhinestone Christmas Tree Pin Brooch was ahead of its time when it was first produced in the mid 1970s.
At the first Chicago chapter meeting of the Vintage Fashion & Costume Jewelry, where Karl Eisenberg spoke, someone from the audience had an example of this Christmas tree pin. The audience swooned over it - so taken were we with the clear lucite jewels we were discovering, seeing this was amazing. The venerable grandson of Jonas, at that time in his seventies, Karl chuckled and said that this would be a very rare design because it was not well received. He went on to say that the only time they did not re strike the mold on a style was when it was "a dog" so they didn't produce many. Apparently, the design was ahead of its time and its time has come because this is a very beautiful, highly sought after Eisenberg Christmas Tree Pin Brooch.
So unusual to use a glass cone as a Christmas tree and embed multicolored, genuine Swarovski rhinestones here and there for a colorful sparkle against the mirror flash of the cone, we consider this one of the most iconic, artistic and fashion forward Christmas tree pin designs among the prolific array of Eisenberg designs. In silver tone metal, this vintage confection by Eisenberg is in wonderful shape. We rate it Excellent in spite of evidence of age to the mirror backing on the cone under magnification. When worn, the pin is bright and sparkling. Most of these did not survive as well according to Mary Morrison.
The pin measures approximately 2-1/4 x -1/2" and has a safety closure.
It is signed, "EISENBERG" with a copyright symbol raised from the mold on the reverse of the pin brooch.
This pin once fetched between $650 and $750 in years past. We offer it at the high book value of Mary's 1998 book.
