Hollycraft private labeled their iconic Christmas tree pins for Pakula. The Hollycraft mold of this particular Christmas tree pin is referenced in the books of Nancy Trowbridge, Mary Morrison and Jill Gallina. This tree came in multi-colored, red and green, two-tone green, and in clear aurora borealis rhinestone and Swarovski crystal combinations.
This sparkly signed Pakula tree, vintage 1960's, features siam red, emerald green, light blue, sapphire blue, pink, teal, citrine orange, aqua and clear rhinestone & crystal ornaments with scalloped swags in antiqued goldtone metal with a clear aurora borealis, flat-back crystal in the center of the 5 pointed star tree topper. This pretty holiday arbor measures 2.5" inches tall X 1.5" inches at its widest point. Back is hallmarked "PAKULA" with the copyright symbol. Excellent condition; only a tiny bit of gold tone loss on the back of the tree (as can be seen in the 3rd photo).
