Description: Monet "Nutcracker" Toy Soldier Brooch - If your taste runs to a little out of the ordinary for Christmas pins, try this - a real conversation starter! Done with red and clear baguettes and red square rhinestones, along with clear, red, and pink round rhinestones, red guilloche enamel and black opaque enamel, all in goldtone, this piece measures 2 1/8" x 3/4" at widest point. I didn't realize that there were sticky fingerprints on the piece until after I saw the photos, they have been removed, and plating on the back is fine, with just a little discoloration by the signature. Excellent condition, fun piece.

Description: Mylu Christmas Tree Earrings - Somewhat 3 dimensional clip earrings from a company that specialized in Christmas jewelry. All goldtone, with paste set emerald green and siam red rhinestones, and tiny siam rhinestones centering the star. Slightly under 1 1/4" x 1". Pristine condition.

Description: ART Christmas Wreath with Enamel and Rhinestones - On the ART page you can see two others of this design, one non-enameled, and one like this, except that this seems to have more white enamel "snow" than the other two. Excellent condition, all stones original. The tiny amount of enamel loss that you can see in this greatly magnified photo is almost unseen in person. The topaz rhinestones are all "golden" in person and not brown. A classic.

Description: ART Christmas Angel with Enamel, Beads and Rhinestones - Angel pins seem much less common than Christmas tree pins, and this is one of the nicer vintage angel pin designs. This actually seems to have been done in three versions - this one, an identical one that uses red rhinestones instead of the cherry red beads, and one with the same body but different wings that have no rhinestones. This is my favorite of the three, with green and white enameling, the cherry red beads for holly berries, and blue enamel rhinestone buttons and clear rhinestones on the wings. The two innermost clear rhinestones have darkened somewhat with time, but the rest of the piece is in excellent condition. Body is curved, about 2 1/8" x 1 1/4".

Description: Eisenberg Frosted Christmas Tree Brooch Pin - For many tree collectors, this is a sought-after, must have. Goldtone setting, with clear rhinestones on the star and on the body of the tree. Frosted clear glass with a foiled back and open-back setting, marked EISENBERG with copyright symbol along bottom right frame edge. Some foil loss as seen in second picture, however it does not affect the appearance from the front (and I have never seen any of these pieces without at least this amount of foil loss.) Slight chip at bottom corner on each side, pictured is the larger of the two; this is also not noticeable from the front but priced accordingly. 2 1/4" x 1 5/8".

Description: BeeGee Christmas Tree Pin in Sapphire Blue and Emerald Green Stones - BeeGee McBride discontinued selling her handmade "collage" style trees a number of years ago (I would date this to the early 2000's) and as they weren't sold in huge numbers they are becoming increasingly difficult to find. Flatbacked oval stones are accented with small glass pearls, blue and blue AB rhinestones, and blue and green rhinestone chain. Applied to a goldtone frame and signed "beegee" in script, this is slightly over 3" x 2", excellent condition, with the green melon glass stone at the top a replacement. Ms. McBridge is a former art instructor from Texas, whose work is shown in Nancy Trowbridge's Christmas tree book.

This one is one of the earlier ones, marked simply EISENBERG ©. Typical pyramid design with each colored stone at the center of a diamond shaped opening with clear stones at the top and hobnailed castings at the bottom.

About 1 3/4" in diameter. Excellent condition.

Description: Wendy Gell Huge Pastel Christmas Tree Brooch - This piece was custom made color-wise for me by Wendy when she was making trees; she usually did this design in multi jeweltones, so I think the pastel combination is pretty rare. Marked Wendy Gell 2000, this isn't really old enough to be vintage but I have included it here as it seemed the closest category. Done in a variety of colors and cuts-cabochons, rose-cut and traditional cuts, and surrounded by pink rhinestone chain and dozens of various sized/shaped/colored faux pearls. At over 4" x 3 1/4", this is a substantial and quite heavy piece. The silvered bugle beads used on the base have yellowed with time, and the pink rivoli and the yellow "star" on top both are slightly chipped, so I can only give this a very good condition rating. Priced at about what I paid for it in 2000. To my knowledge Wendy no longer does any jewelry.

Description: Brooks "Harp" Christmas Tree Pin - While we have had Brooks trees in the past, they have been with colored stones - here is one with clear rhinestones. Goldtone, 2 1/4" x 1 3/4" at widest points. Clear stones are all prong set, and have greyed slightly , but uniformly, almost giving the effect of black diamond stones. Still plenty of sparkle left! Otherwise excellent original condition.

Description: ART Christmas Boot Brooch - As much as I like Christmas tree pins, I think some of the non-tree pieces have a lot of personality and charm, and this piece certainly fills that description. Goldtone boot has black, orange, light blue, red and green enameling and small white glass pearls, with leaves and gifts spilling out of the top of the boot. About 1 5/8" x 1 1/4". Other than a small factory bubble in the enameling on the orange package it is in like new condition.

Description: Weiss Red, Green and Clear Christmas Tree Pin - This piece is shown in Mary Morrison's Christmas Tree book on p. 88, and even though she thinks this design might be a repro, she has it valued in the $85-135 range! I have priced this MUCH less, partly because it has a solder repair at the upper end of the clasp, and a few clears in the vicinity of the repair aren't as sparkly as the others (see closeup photo.) Not noticeable unless you are looking for it. The tree measures about 2 3/4" x 2", set in silvertone.

Description: Mylu Christmas Tree Pin with Dangling Olivine AB Crystals - Shown in both the Trowbridge and the Morrison Christmas pin books, but with red crystals, the green is apparently a little harder to find. 2 1/4" x 1 7/8", goldtone setting, this is in excellent original condition. Mylu was started by Lynne Gordon and Marge Borofsky in the 1960's.

Description: Pakula Candle Tree Pin - This piece is shown in this colorization in Mary Morrison's book, and in two other colorizations in Nancy Trowbridge's book. 2 3/8" x 1 3/4", this is in excellent condition and uses emerald green baguettes with red enamel flames and numerous red rhinestone ornaments. Plated brass; plating is of the particular color that Hollycraft used, and since Hollycraft manufactured for Pakula I would assume this is actually of Hollycraft production. Marked with a copyright symbol and Pakula on right lowest branch (see back picture.) I have priced this at the low end of the price estimates.

Multi jeweltone rhinestones for ornaments, clear rhinestone baguettes for candles with topaz colored rhinestone flames. 2 1/2" x 2" at the widest point. Excellent original condition.

Description: ART "Garland" Christmas Tree Pin - This ART tree is shown in Morrison, Gallina and Trowbridge, and has been nickednamed the "garland" tree, and apparently came in both this version and one with olive green enamel under the "snow". Typical rhinestone colors of hyacinth, amber, emerald and cobalt. Excellent condition - one green stones seems a little large but I can find no evidence that it is a replacement. 2 1/8" x 1 1/8".

Description: Rare Pakula Comet Argent 5-Tiered Christmas Tree Pin and Matching Earrings - Highly unusual Christmas tree pin set (and a design match for the SP8-463 tree, above) in that it uses comet argent (metallic silver) rhinestones set in antiqued silvertone, each piece topped with a clear aurora borealis flatback. Grey seems to have been a popular color in the late 1950's and I am guessing that these were produced around that time. Excellent condition, one stone is a replacement. Earrings are 1 1/8" x 3/4".

Description: Hattie Carnegie "Press and Glow" Light Up Tree in Original Box - One of the ultimate finds for a tree collector and for those who love Hattie. I do not know whether this will work or not as I have not been able to find the correct battery; I am assuming the original battery would have been a hearing aid battery?? Anyway an added plus is the original presentation box, and all appear to be in excellent condition. Pin that holds the cover to the battery shut is loose but could be adjusted once you find the correct battery. A variation of this piece is shown in almost every Christmas collector book.

Description: Jeanne Christmas Tree Pin with Red and Green Rhinestones - Jeanne pieces are difficult to come by; this is the only Christmas tree I have seen by this company, and I have not seen any Jeanne trees in any of the Christmas books - Trowbridge shows a Jeanne piece but it is not a tree. 2 3/8" x 1 7/8" at the widest point, this uses a rope design to outline the branches of the tree. Goldtone has mellowed a bit with time but everything is in excellent shape. Rare.

There are some clear rhinestones here that may or may not be original; if you would like us to replace them, we can do it, but this was as found. 2 1/4" x 1 1/2", layered openwork design has olive colored enameling, goldtone.

Goldtone, the flatbacks are light green tourmaline colored, with pink, blue and siam red stones sprinkled around for ornaments. 2 1/4" x 1 1/2", this piece is shown in Gallina's 2nd edition and is, I believe, the genuine article.

Description: Kramer Christmas Tree Pin - Shown in both Trowbridge and Morrison, this has shiny goldtone plating set with clear aurora borealis rhinestones for the bulk of the piece, and olive green, fuchsia and hyacinth (orange) rhinestones sprinkled about for ornaments. Trowbridge has this piece valued at $150-$200, we have gone with the more conservative values in the Morrison book; however, it should be noted that Kramer trees are not very common. Excellent condition.

Description: Hollycraft Christmas Tree Pin - Shown in Gallina, Trowbridge and Morrison, this wonderful tree uses colored baguette candles with extra facets (which to my knowledge these stones are no longer made); as per usual with Hollycraft most of the rest of the stones are flatback (rosecut) stones. 2 1/4" x 1 1/2". Some of the flatbacks show age, but everything appears to be original. Slight verdigris at top left on the back has been removed. Price reflects condition.

Description: JEZ Sterling Christmas Tree Pin - Again, I do not know what JEZ stands for - this also has an upside-down copyright mark above JEZ and 925 (sterling mark.). This has patina and could be restored to original bright silvertone but I will leave that to the new owner's discretion. This tree's boughs are done in swirls; a wreath, a candy cane, a gift box and what I think is supposed to be a snowman dangle off the bottom as charms, with each charm except the candy cane being marked the same as the tree. What appears to be a garnet cabochon is set in the star. 1 3/4" x 1 1/2" (not including charms in this measurement.) Other than expected patina this is in excellent condition.

Description: Avon Bow Tree Pin - Again, shown in Gallina, Trowbridge, and Morrison, this goldtone tree has colored aurora borealis rhinestones, (probably a cool color but it is difficult to tell which) and lots of bows. Trowbridge states that this is a pre-1978 tree. 2 1/4" x 1 5/8". Excellent condition. I have priced both of these trees quite conservatively compared to their book values.
