This classic Napier design boasts four tiers of emerald green, olivine green and bright red navette marquis rhinestones, all prong set in shiny, rhodium plated silver tone. In-between are three smaller navettes and two round chatons for added interest. The topper is a single red marquis stone and the trunk has a cushion cut topaz brown stone and three round chatons that form a t-square.
This lovely holiday arbor is featured on page 117 of Nancy Trowbridge's go-to book, Christmas Tree Pins, in Jill Gallina's new edition of "Christmas Pins Past and Present", which shows this tree on page 111, where she states it dates to the 1950's, and in the 2013-14 published book, "Comprehensive Guide to Christmas Tree Pins" by Kathy Flood on page 145 (valued at $75-$125).
It measures 2" inches tall X 1 1/8" inches at its widest point. Pristine, excellent condition.
