When the oak is felled the whole forest echoes with its fall, but a hundred acorns are sown in silence by an unnoticed breeze. - Thomas Carlyle
The Oak tree symbolises: hospitality, stability, strength, honour, eternity, endurance and liberty.
Mighty, strong, enduring and steadfast, old oaks were venerated and used by the druids and later by the kings and the Church.
All Glover and Smith designs are made from solid polished lead free pewter which is non-tarnishing (that was the lead) and completely food safe. Because we use solid metal the surface of your Oak Leaf salad servers will never flake or rust, just wash with warm soapy water. All our designs are made exclusively by us in Wiltshire.
