An Ornament For The Tree

November 2023
1min read

In 1973 American Heritage, in a decidedly uneditorial foray, offered its readers two silver Christmas-tree ornaments—a dove and a reindeer—and received a warm enough response to strike off and sell an angel the next year. In 1975 the theme became more specifically antiquarian and American: an extremely good-looking miniature of a turn-of-the-century locomotive weather vane. American Heritage itself no longer issues the ornaments, but they still bear our blessing. This year the ornament is an evergreen holiday wreath ( $65.00 , CODE: DBH-1), crafted, like its predecessors, in sterling and, like them, a handsome memento of the season.

We hope you enjoy our work.
