It was a display for married couples, to preserve their wedding souvenirs and tell the story of their wedding. It was usually placed prominently in the formal dining room, on the buffet. They typically held the bride's crown. Included were items that they went together to pick, such as mirrors and brass-stamped cut-outs. These items were important, as the couple picked out articles based on the symbols that they represented, and these symbols told the story of the couple.Please note other items in the pictures are for scale and display inspiration only, they are not included in the sale.
