Lovely rectangular beveled glass container. Possibly to put wax head wreath in to keep it safe after the wedding. The is a beautiful decorative monogram on the top lid and beautiful rich silk burgundy padded cushion. The metal surround is bronze and all is in very good condition...no breaks or chips. There is a tiny dent in the one left ball foot that you do not even notice but I prefer to mention it. These are very expensive to buy and hard to find in France but I did find this here in the states out of a north shore estate. So I can be more reasonable in price. Large size foot to foot: 8 1/8" back to front: 5 3/8 height: 4 3/4"
