    laurel bows?

    In my dictionary, the word "bow" has a diverse range of meanings. Can anybody tell me what it means in the following context?

    "...this solid pine, estate-sized table boasts Gothic carvings of rosettes, scrolls and laurel bows highlighted by a hand-waxed, rich golden finish..."

    A laurel bow (rhymes with 'go', not 'now') is a garland, often of flowers, worn around the neck.
