Victorian Bohemian Garnet Bow & Acorn Brooch


An unusual Bohemian garnet bow brooch with a pendant acorn. The acorn was a popular motif in the Victorian era. It conveyed longevity and renewal, and because the mighty oak tree grows from the tiny acorn, it was also employed as a symbol of power or victory.
