Valentine’s window display, starring a gorgeous Antique Globe de Mariée (Marriage Globe). Popular in the 1800s and a keepsake to preserve wedding souvenirs, as well to tell the story of their wedding and their dreams of their future life together. It’s rife with symbolism, each gold plated brass cut out was chosen by the bride and groom and had a special meaning to them. The #dove was a symbol of #love and desire for peace in the home. The bird holding the wreath symbolised “that as a bird makes its best, so does a woman build her family”. The strawberries were a symbol of fertility. Ivy leaves symbolised their commitment to each other. The diamond shaped mirrors represented the number of children the couple hoped for. The central mirror evoked the reflection of the soul, symbolising the truth. Rectangular mirrors were related to the number of years between the couple’s meeting and their promised marriage. The trapezoidal mirror symbolised the perfect agreement. #globedemariee #antiquejewellery #antiquejewelry #vintagejewellery #vintagejewelry #fidrajewellers #jewelled #diamondjewellery #antiquediamonds
