O Tannenbaum Christmas Tree Ornament in Pewter

In a poem Robert Frost wrote, called "Christmas Trees," he tells the story of a man wanting to buy the trees on his land to sell at Christmas.  The man surveys the sum total of Frost's bounty and comes up with the number of trees he wants to buy:

"We climbed the pasture on the south, crossed over,
And came down on the north. He said, “A thousand.”

“A thousand Christmas trees!—at what apiece?”

He felt some need of softening that to me:
“A thousand trees would come to thirty dollars.”
Of course, he doesn't sell his trees:
"But thirty dollars seemed so small beside
The extent of pasture I should strip, three cents
(For that was all they figured out apiece) . . ."

Frost notes:

"Worth three cents more to give away than sell,
As may be shown by a simple calculation.
Too bad I couldn’t lay one in a letter."

While Frost couldn't put one of his three cent trees in his Christmas cards, you can slip our "O Tannenbaum Christmas Tree Ornament" in yours!
"O Tannenbaum" ornament (1 3/4" x 2 5/8") in pewter on satin ribbon.  Comes in a clear sleeve with bookmark.
