******* PLEASE READ CAREFULLY AS THERE ARE CHANGES TO THIS LISTING. IT NO LONGER HAS IT'S ORIGINAL GLASS DOME BECAUSE IT WAS FOUND BROKEN AFTER OUR HOUSE MOVE. THE INSIDE IS STILL PERFECTLY INTACT AND UNDAMAGED. THE INTERIOR DISPLAY IS ATTACHED TO THE WOODEN BASE AND IS SECURE.******

*******I AM SELLING THE INTERIOR DECORATION ALONG WITH THE WOODEN BASE AND THE LITTLE PAPER BRIDE, WHICH CAN BE SEEN SITTING ON THE PILLOW, IS UNDAMAGED AND WILL BE INCLUDED AS I HAD TUCKED HER AWAY FOR SAFE KEEPING AND SHE WAS NOT IN WITH THE GLASS DOME. THIS ITEM HAD SOLD ON AND IT WASN;T UNTIL I WENT TO UNBOX IT TO SEND TO THE BUYER THAT IT WAS FOUND BROKEN. I HAVE ADDED PHOTOS OF THE DAMAGED DOME. PLEASE SEE. *******

*******MY ORIGINAL LISTING IS SHOWN BELOW IN ITS' ENTIRETY*******

*******This item is still tall & will require an oversized box. I have estimated shipping/insurance costs but will refund any overages if it is less to ship, and I will pay the extra amount if I underestimated.


Beautiful, ornately decorated Victorian glass dome called β€œGlobe de Mariee” also referred to as a Wedding or Marriage dome, featuring a red silk satin button-tufted pillow in the center of the piece surrounded by life-like fabric flowers and leaves adorning either side of the pillow and arching up towards the top of the dome. It is 22 1/2” tall and 15” wide across the base.


Several angular-shaped mirrors are framed in bright gilt metal and alternate in the design entwined around the bridal white and pale blushed floral bouquets. The bridal pillow itself sits upon a fancy gilt metal crown in the center. Very ornate gilt metal scrolls, flowers, and leaves further accentuate the interior, the most lavish of which is the large, gilt-framed, beveled mirror that surmounts the top of the display drawing the eye upwards to a gilded dove with outspread wings and holding a bridal wreath in his beak.


I have had this globe de Mariee in my personal collection for over 20 years. The final touch to this display has to be the small paper doll bride which is 2-dimensional and shows her bridal ensemble. She is not attached within but I have set her upon the tufted red pillow which was her place since this was made. All in all, an exceptionally lavish display.


If you have any questions please message me. I am always happy to help. Thank you for your interest in my sale and I hope you will continue to visit from time to time as I will keep listing 18th and 19th century antiques, dolls, clothing, paintings, and other decorative antiques.


I will ship for free within the continental USA. If you are international, I can get a shipping cost for you with your information.
