Victorian wedding flower wreath, antique wool flower arrangement

  • $65000 CAD

A Victorian wedding flower wreath, executed in wool and framed in a deep shadow box frame. This is a fantastic vibrant and large piece which would display well in a business or home setting. Wreaths such as these were made for the winter time, when fresh flowers were near impossible to come by. All flowers were handmade and are still amazingly bright. Amongst the flowers there are lilies and roses, and a central bleeding heart in the centre of the heart-shaped wreath. After the ceremony, the wreath would be kept in a deep well shadowbox such as this one. The frame has been gilded and the corners set with metal plaques. It is quite sizeable at 23-1/2 x 23-1/2 x 4-3/4 inches
(60 x 60 x 12.5 cm). It weighs 3.9 kg.
The flowers are all in nice condition. There is a slight of debris within the frame and some discoloration to the backing paper, mostly in the front corners. The gilded frame with marks of age and use, including some scratches and loss / discoloration of gilding. All 4 metal corners are there, 1 with a the little tip towards the glass broken off. Its seems this piece has the original handmade glass, complete with air bubbles. With a 2 piece wooden backing, nailed into place.
Please feel free to ask for additional images if you need them.
