Prong-set false tooth, hand-etched with a very tiny set of acorns and leaves and surrounded with an oak leaf wreath made in copper. The back of the setting is open to show off the small golden pins that would hold the tooth into their base.
Do not forget that from a small acorn grows a mighty oak tree. This motif was very popular in late Victorian design as a symbol of power, victory, or longevity. Is it any wonder that the oak and acorn emblazon the Vanderbilt family coat of arms?
