Sweet as a nut! This fun and versatile Victorian acorn brooch is the perfect accessory for everyday wear and would look great with many an outfit!
The Victorians were known for their use of symbolism and were keen on the acorn motif believed to bestow luck upon its wearer. Three expertly hand engraved and embossed acorns adorn the front of this antique brooch, with leaves boasting beautifully scrolled patterns and drawing your eye to the beads often seen in Victorian Aesthetic design.
On the brooches reverse one can see the negative of the acorns and leaves, you can almost imagine the jeweller sitting in his studio creating the repousse motif over a century ago!
This festive Victorian acorn brooch is the perfect autumn accessory. Just imagine a Victorian woman dressed in fabulous attire pinning her scarf with this brooch before leaving the house on a chilly autumnal morning, as you will now almost 150 years later!
