What a customer said about a similar piece:
'Stunning! As always I have received the most amazing service from start to finish and the piece is just as described. I cannot thank you enough.'
There are four of these beautiful antique wax bridal or bridesmaid garlands left in total, all fourmore or less identical with slight variations. This listing is for one headdress, but if you would like more just select the amount when you check out.
These lovely pieces were sourced from Glottertal. Glottertal is a small town in Austria situated between the Black Forest and the Rhine Valley. It is an historic place, with records going back at least 900 years to 1112.
One of the things that is very rare is that there are four matching ones, therefore suitable for up to four bridesmaids. They are made of delicate wax pieces on covered wire. Just amazing and lovely and really stunning things.
All of them are in good and wearable condition. I notice one or two of the flowers are very slightly damaged or a little loose, but really they are all in excellent and wearable condition.
The exact ages of these headdresses is unknown, but there are photographs of similar pieces being worn in the 1920's. The whole vibe of them is completely Woodland and Art Nouveau. Just fantastic and so magical. These will definitely delight your bridesmaids.
They are each approximately 9" (23 cm) long. They will easily adjust for different sized heads. They could be worn on the top of the head or more towards the front. They can also be worn with the two pieces more spread apart.
(There are also several broken ones left in my possession, I believe enough to make three more headdresses with a little sewing. So if you have more than four bridesmaids or you need these for some reason, please convo me and we can discuss. If you buy all four of these, I will give you all the broken ones.)
