This is a striking and very unusual example of a French "globe de mariee" cushion aka wedding dome cushion
These display cushions would be used by the bride to preserve her wedding tiara or crown after the big day, housed together with her waxed floral bouquet.
They traditionally sat underneath a glass dome to preserve the contents.
Designs vary per region and this particular one combines silk & velvet with intricate toleware decoration, waxed orange blossom flowers and metaled tassels.
A really rare example that would make a wonderful display stand in a bedroom or dressing room for a special piece of jewelry (or tiara!) - or in a Dining Room which was its traditional location in France in the 1900s

1010 Vintage is run by Mel - an incorrigible magpie with a passion for collecting and curating.  Based in mid-Wales, Mel's extensive collections have spilled out of the house, into the barns and from there onto her website.

The emphasis of 1010 Vintage is on faded glamour and rustic charm, and each piece is handpicked for its aesthetic or originality. 1010 Vintage focuses on items that sing as solo statement pieces and quirky collectibles that work to great effect en masse. Each item has had a previous life and carries that imprint with it into its new home. Where the provenance is known, details will happily be shared so these timeworn but treasured pieces don’t lose their back story – or their history.
