Bridal crown vases
Ca 1850 – 1900
Historically, in Scandinavian weddings, it was tradition to place the wedding bouquet in a bridal crown vase in front of the newlyweds at the dinner table. Hence the name. In between the weddings the bridal vases would be put in larger vases or urns to serve as practical flower holders that kept the floral arrangements in place. It’s also said that the glass blowers of the glassworks sneakingly used to make these bridal vases as love gifts to their girlfriends.
