We generally ship by USPS.com as opposed to UPS or FedEX. UPS and FedEX use more conveyor belts for sorting packages and glass does not like to be dropped from conveyor belt to conveyor belt. We have been packing and shipping for over 25 years and have better than 95% safety record. We guarantee to get the order to you in one piece.
Victorian Antique Oval Glass Domes were very popular in Europe and often used in the wedding ceremony. A glass dome covered a display called a ‘du marriage’ which held a pin cushion, mirrors and baby pictures of the bride and groom. Money and notes were pined to the cushion for the bride and groom. The du marriage display was stapled to a base and covered with the oval glass dome.
Victorian Antique Oval Glass Domes were found in almost all the mansions and state houses and were often used to cover taxidermy birds and animals. These domes with the birds and animals can be found throughout Europe.
Bases used for antique glass domes were often made up of multiple woods and painted black. There is usually a groove in the base for the oval glass dome to sit in.
