Antique Oval Glass Dome
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.
