This is an antique oval glass dome that can restore your antique heirloom to it original appearance. We acquire antique domes from all over the world to help you preserve your keepsake.
A common display in Europe is to make a plaster mold of a childs hand and wrist and place it under a glass dome. These displays were very popular in Victorian times.
Antique Oval Glass Domes can be found that cover wax items such as flowers or fruit, sea shell art, taxidermy of birds and other pets including frogs and dogs.
Often time you will see a braided chord around the base of a glass dome. This provides a finish effect for a dome. Sometimes when a glass dome gets broken and an exact size dome can not be found the braded chord is placed into the groove and the replacement glass dome fits just inside the chord or just outside of it. The chord has the effect of holding the glass dome in place and again gives a very pleasing effect.
