During the Norman Conquest, the English carried dried acorns to protect themselves from the brutalities of the day. Considered to be an emblem of luck, prosperity, youthfulness and power, the Acorn is a good luck symbol ! It also represents spiritual growth.

One of the memories of my deceased mother is this silver acorn pendant. Tested with an old Dutch sword silver hallmark. These sword marks used 1814-1905 as the standard mark on articles too small for the full hallmarking.
Originally, this pendant likely to have been a part of a buckle. At the back you can see that there are rings that enable the buckle to sew on fabric. Measurement include bail: 4.3 x 2 cm
All the times I wear it, this is a dear reminder of my mother.

Also a small CW party today. Today I published my 250th ornament on CW. If that is not a reason to party?

    antiquarius123 what a kind comment and compliment! It's a pity we cannot party all collectors together, that would be a genuine exchange of knowledge and skills related to antique and vintage jewelry. So I'm afraid I have to prosit of my own!
    Thanks also for loving !
