This is a classic and well-known pin, designed by Tancer II and signed on the back. It is the famous "Mink Tree." It is goldtone and its center is indeed a beautiful furry mink. It measures 2-1/2" x 1-5/8" and is in great condition -- the goldtone is darkened slightly, but overall, it is hardly noticeable. It is featured in the Morrison, Trowbridge and Gallina Christmas tree pin books -- and is a widely known piece. So much fun!!
