This rare-to-find holiday arbor is twice a "book piece", featured on page 161 in Nancy Trowbridge's Christmas Tree Pins books and also on page 142 of Mary Morrison's Christmas Jewelry guide.
THIS VERY tree is featured on page 163 of "Christmas Pins Past and Present, 3rd Edition" by Jill Gallina! Book just published November, 2013. Tree value: $45-$60.
Pears are thickly enameled in yellow, leaves lightly enameled in yellow-green, and the partridge bird has a bright red enameled back and eye, all over shiny gold tone. It stands 2 5/8" inches tall X 2" inches at its widest point. Back of the tree is hallmarked "Accessocraft N.Y.C." in a raised, oval cartouche. It is in very excellent condition, save for one tiny flaw - teeny crack in yellow enamel of the pear in the lower right hand corner - zoom in on 1st photo to see it.
