The Napier Co. manufactured a variety of Christmas pins throughout the years, including wreaths, candy canes, trees, Christmas bells and snowflakes. In the collectors genre, these pins are highly desirable and have maintained a strong demand on the secondary market.
These pins, especially the rhinestone embellished motifs, are heavily coveted by collectors. Napier pins can be found both cast and stone-set– with the former embellished with pearls or rhinestones, or like the above heavily plated gold example in the photo from the 1990s.
While age might be a factor with most vintage jewelry collectibles, this seems not to be the case with Napierâ€™s holiday pins. Perhaps due to the fact that there were made in limited numbers, pins from the 1950s through the 1990s are of great interest. Prices range from $35.00 to $100.00. Sets can go for even higher prices.
Napierâ€™s most renown 1950s rhinestone Christmas tree holiday pin, measuring about 1 Âľâ€ť in height, consistently fetches online auction prices around $80.00.
