A love story preserved in glass and gold, the globe de mariée is a ritual established during the reign of Napoleon III, meant to house the most important mementos of a couple’s wedding day. Upon a cushion of red velvet, the bridal crown of woven orange flowers (dried or preserved in wax) would rest alongside brass-stamped symbols important to the bride and groom, as well as a number of mirrors to reflect the truth of their souls, and the number of children they hoped to have. These were equal parts art pieces and treasure chests of memories, meant to be honored for not only the couple’s lifetime, but their future generations’ as well.
