Oaks & Acorns at Gumps.

I think it’s fairly evident from the wedding that I love oaks & acorns.

Cohn-Stone Handblown Glass Acorn
‘These harbingers of autumn are made by artists at California’s renowned Cohn-Stone Studios, whose works are prized by museums and collectors worldwide. To create the translucent palette, artisans layer colored glass beneath clear crystal, then blow and shape each piece by hand. Acting as sculpture and paperweight alike, the substantial, opaque acorn features a glass cap with gold luster. Each piece is signed by the artist. Made in the USA.’
