This fantastic antique French marriage stand in it's original glass vitrine dates from the Napoleon III period C1860. These stands were used to display keepsakes from a wedding and this one has it's original bridal couronne & flowers from the bouquet. 

The focal point of the stand is the plump red padded velvet cushion upon which the wax bud wedding couronne & flowers sit.
