The tradition of the Globe de Mariée began in nineteenth century France. The domes were created as a display for wedding souvenirs, which often included wax orange blossoms. Each component of these lovely displays had a special meaning, and couples would carefully choose each part of their display.
The happy couple often added special mementos to the display over the years. These three beautiful examples were recently offered for sale at Silverdale Antiques.
Oak leaves - Longevity
Ivy leaves - Commitment
Roses - Eternal love
Daisies - Purity
Bird & wreath - Family
