What a unique late 19th century item...and how perfect!!! This Original French "Mariage" box contains a lovely Original Wax Bouquet and is just the thing for Mademoiselle's special day! The wax buds and flowers are a well preserved creamy color. There are some clear glass centers sewn in the flowers to give just that dewy touch of reality. The bouquet measures approximately 3" wide by 4 1/2" long. It is contained in the creamy white paper covered box with gold script on top. The bouquet (or possibly once a corsage) sets on a tiny doily. The box has "Mariage" printed on the top and "Aucouturier Confiseur Lapalisse printed on the side. The box measures 3 3/4" by 6" and is 5/8" deep. Both the box and the bouquet are nice and in good condition as to age of items. How very nice to have the remembrance box for her to place and save her bouquet! Very special!
