A most unusual original Victorian silver tiara with acorn and oak leaf design. Mighty, strong, enduring and steadfast old oaks were venerated and used by the druids and later by the kings and the Church in England. The oak has been venerated in England for hundreds of years. The Oak tree symbolises hospitality, stability, strength, honour, eternity, endurance and liberty. There is the common saying “From great oaks little acorns grow”. This tiara has a lovely naturalistic effect when worn, and has lovely connotations. It was made circa 1880.
