We are pleased to offer for your buying consideration a MAGNIFICENT ANTIQUE MINIATURE WEDDING VITRINE HEIRLOOM HANDKERCHIEF BOX!
Originally used in the early 1900's as a special keepsake box to house BRIDAL HEIRLOOM handkerchiefs, this EXQUISITE antique vitrine would make a FABULOUS DISPLAY for your MIGNONETTES or ALL BISQUE Bebes with their TROUSSEAU items, or the perfect miniature case to showcase the most coveted FASHION ACCESSORIES of your most PAMPERED POUPEE------------an absolute GORGEOUS piece!
This particular vitrine is an EXCEPTIONAL EXAMPLE of it's type, and probably in the most BEAUTIFULLY PRESERVED condition we have ever seen, offered fresh out of a QUALITY COLLECTION of antique doll and accessory items, many of which we will be offering for sale shortly!
The frame of the vitrine is made of glass and is TRIANGULAR SHAPED, measuring 10 1/2" wide along the back, 7 1/2" long on each side, and is 3 1/2" high to the top of the glass lid! The most ELABORATE antique handkerchief box we have seen, with a DELICIOUS CONCOCTION of original feminine cream silk embellishments including fancy RUCHED TRIM along the top and bottom sides and framing the top of the lid, a double SCALLOPED GARLAND on both of the sides, and an AMAZING BOUQUET of hand made sweet silk flowers clustered on top of a HUGE BOW crowning the top! It's overall SCRUMPTIOUS PRESENTATION combined with it's triangular shape reminds us of a slice of Victorian WEDDING CAKE---------it is absolutely BREATHTAKING!
The vitrine opens from the front with a silk loop on the pointed end of the glass top, and inside is nestled the original VICTORIAN HANDKERCHIEF made of lovely pink chiffon, bordered with four rows of dainty ECRU LACE! The handkerchief measures 14" square when unfolded, and when folded in the box fits the bottom compartment perfectly! With just a few light age spots on the lid bow, the rest of this beautiful piece is in absolute AMAZING CONDITION------you will LOVE it! The perfect gift for that SPECIAL BRIDE, or the ideal venue to house the TINY TREASURES of your antique Fashion doll or even to showcase some tiny MIGNONETTE dolls; we can envision creating a doll's WEDDING DISPLAY around it as demonstrated by our 13" BRIDAL POUPEE who delights in modeling this SPECTACULAR PIECE!
