This vintage late 1960's, brushed gold tone holiday arbor is featured on page 59 in "Christmas Jewelry" by Mary Morrison.
Also, THIS VERY tree is featured on page 156 of "Christmas Pins Past and Present, 3rd Edition" by Jill Gallina! (Just published November, 2013) Value: $75-$100
This rare-to-find Christmas tree pin boasts large and small rhinestones in jewel tones of garnet red, sapphire blue and emerald green. The topper is a peace sign symbol, perhaps inspired by the Vietnam War of the time it was made. It measures 3" inches tall X 1 3/4" inches at its widest point. It is hallmarked "MV" on the back and is in excellent condition; only a few very minor wear spots to the gold tone to note.
