I see an oak and maple leaf. I do not have access to a tree key, but the maple leaf comes from a particular kind of maple and that can help identify where in the country it may have come from. It is possible that all these leaves came form the same region.

TWO HUNDRED YEARS? What is your evidence for that?

Look up "leaf carving" ...
