Pulled from my private collection comes this rare, Cadoro signed Partridge in a Pear tree Christmas pin. This one has the green glass pear (and I have the other one listed separately that has the yellow enameled pear, RL-3726), which dangles from the bottom of the tree. This fabulous gold plated tree is adorned with a flock of partridge birds that make up the tiered boughs of this precious and rare holiday arbor.
THIS VERY tree is featured on page 161 of "Christmas Pins Past and Present, 3rd Edition" by Jill Gallina! Book just published November, 2013. Tree value: $150 each.
This tree measures 2 1/2" inches tall. It is hallmarked on the back "Cadoro" with the copyright symbol. It is in excellent condition.
More about Cadoro...their custom designed couture pieces featured hand crafted brushed gold and silver plated metals along with beautiful rhinestones and glass crystals from all over the world. The company ceased production in 1970. Cadoro jewelry is rare and highly sought after.
