This signed Ballou BAB Christmas tree pin is sterling silver with a gold wash or gold plate. It is a swish, brush stroke design, rendered in textured matte and shiny gold plate. This holiday arbor is featured in Nancy Trowbridge's Christmas Tree Pins book. It stands 1 5/8" inches tall and is hallmarked "BAB Sterling" on the back, for the Ballou Jewelry Company of Providence, Rhode Island. It is in mint condition in its original box with paperwork. Lovely!
