Mercer Oak Gold Plated Ornament by Design Concepts


Design Concepts by Joan Ellis

This ornament is from a series of Princeton historic landmark ornaments.  These beautiful gold plated solid brass ornaments are certain to become a treasured heirloom.

The Mercer Oak, standing in the center of the battlefield at Princeton, commemorates a notable battle of the Revolution, fought January 3, 1777.  After the victory at Trenton, General Washington began to march to Princeton in the dead of night.  General Mercer's small force was the first to engage the British.  Mortally wounded by British bayonets, General Mercer was carried to this tree for medical attention, and then to the nearby Clark house where he died.  Washington and his troops arrived and the British retreated.
