This Christmas tree brooch stands 3 inches tall. It is signed on the back "Original by Robert" and it is numbered. The pin is enameled and has a small rhinestone at the top in the center of the star.
Original by Robert began business in 1942 in New York City. The original name was Fashioncraft Jewelry Company but went through a couple of name changes before settling on 'Original by Robert'. The company closed operations in 1979.
Researching the company online I found a statement regarding the marks or signatures on their pieces that said "after 1955 they all had a copyright symbol" and that "Today, Original by Robert jewelry is highly collectible". This piece that I'm offering does have the copyright symbol, so that dates it to between 1955 and 1979. I purchased the pin at an estate sale, so there was no one to obtain further date info from.
When mailed, the brooch will be sent insured and with Signature Conformation required. Since those safeguards are for the protection of us both, I split those costs with the buyer.
Delivery will be via Insured USPS First Class Mail Parcel from Arizona. Buyer to pay delivery charges of $6.95.
