Victorian Wax Roses in Hand-blown Glass Dome

Regular price $55.00

Since finding a very elaborate one in Nashville a few months ago, I've been keeping an eye out for Victorian waxworks under handblown glass domes, but am picky--I want them either rather spare, or very ornate! This one appeals for its relative simplicity--no little girls or little boys or little lambs, just a pair of pink wax roses, each petal carefully sculpted, attached to wire and fabric stems, with a few additional cloth flower sprigs added in. To me, it feels pretty symbolic--hopeful young pink rose buds forever preserved in their own little world while life marches on!

5 1/4” t x 2 5/8” d and in very good condition, with just a bit of loss to the brown paper that wraps the base.
