RARE Gunmetal Cut-Outs over Mirror Christmas Tree Pin ~ Book Piece
This rare-to-find Christmas tree pin has a raised or slightly domed top in a satin gunmetal silver tone finish, with cut out designs of a christmas stocking, angel, candy cane, and holly with berries. These cut-out designs are reflected by the mirror in the interior, which is the backing for this very unique tree.
THIS VERY tree is featured on page 179 of "Christmas Pins Past and Present, 3rd Edition" by Jill Gallina! Book just published November, 2013. Tree value: $75-$95.
The traditional outline of a Christmas tree is topped by a tiny star, which bears a single clear crystal or rhinestone. The tree sits in a large pot, which is detailed with 3 cut-out triangular openings and incised cuts in the metal for a shiny contrast to the overall matte finish of this wonderful holiday arbor.
This mirrored tree stands 2 5/8" inches tall, and it is in excellent condition.
NOTE: Author Kathy Flood said, "There were only two known colors in this unusual satin-finish openwork tree: red and green. One seller has it in gold" (That's me!). I sold the gold one I had in September...now I'm selling this gunmetal one I just found! There's a red one available on Ebay.
Gender: Unisex, Age Group: Adult, Color: gunmetal grey, silver, clear, Size: M
