Item Details

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
