Acorns hold great symbolism as the small seed of the mighty oak tree. For centuries they have been used in decorative arts to represent potential, strength, and longevity. In 1797 D. Everett wrote "Large streams from little fountains flow. Tall oaks from little acorns grow." We too believe that great things come from small beginnings.
