This Vintage Weiss Tri-Colored Christmas Tree Brooch or pin is both interesting and lovely to see.
It stands 2 5/8 inches tall, 2 inches wide at its widest point. Packed with three layers of sparkling colored crystals of 24 deep green that are 4mm, 17 Champagne Pink 4mm, and 10 pail yellow stones at the top are 3mm. On this tree the star does not have a stone, rather a small polished silver metal bead gives a subdued glow.
The outline of the pin is done in a bright patterned silver metal and it almost reminds you of a snow covered tree in the forest that is lit by the moonlight.
Condition: Excellent Vintage. Once again I can not find anything to notify you about. The pin has a wobble when open but the thumb clasp closes securely and the pin is tight when clasped. All stones are present and bright and looking forward to brightening your holidays.
The Estate sale was for items owned by William and Susan Ecenbarger.
William won the Pulitzer Prize for General news in 1980 for his outstanding coverage of the Three Mile Island nuclear accident coverage. (TMI to us locals) He was a reporter and and editor for the Philadelphia Inquirer in his day and also Freelanced with his work having been published in The Washington Post, the Los Angeles Times, Smithsonian Magazine, Esquire, Audubon and other leading newspapers and magazines.
He wrote historical books too; “Walkin' the Line: A Journey from Past to Present Along the Mason-Dixon”, published in 2000 and “Glory by the Wayside: The Old Churches of Hawaii which was co-authored by his wife Susan (who also did the principal photography for the book). This was released in 2008. He not only won the Pulitzer, but in his writing career he also won the George Polk Award, and the Lowell Thomas Travel Writer of the Year among many others.
I am assuming that Susan was the collector of the fabulous jewelry I saw there. Be sure to find the other offerings by Eisenberg, Weiss and Pell from this estate here in my shop.
