A gorgeous, antique glass dome and beautiful, circular rustic base. This piece was possibly used for a French Globe de Mariee (a traditional piece created by newly married couples in 18th and 19th century France as a way to display and protect wedding souvenirs) or maybe to house a clock.
The black paint on this stand is beautifully weathered and worn which has created a lovely patina and a pretty contrast to the clear glass dome which sits on top of it. The wooden stand itself also shows some signs of wear and tear with one or two splits in the surface of the wood, it is however still sound and this just adds to it's rustic character.
These beautiful domes are a lovely way of displaying your own treasures in your home. They also make great photography props and shop display pieces.
