The fruit bark and gum of cherry trees were used to soothe coughs, treat bronchial complaints and improve digestion. Crushed cherries, applied externally were reputed to refresh tired skin and relieve migraines. Our original model was made from cuttings taken at George Washington's Mount Vernon. A portion of the sales of this design goes to the support of George Washington's Mount Vernon.
Materials: The brooch is cast in bronze and accented with two large red jade cherries.
Measures: 2.75" L x 2" W
