Rare Old FRENCH MEMORY CASKET Communion / Wedding WHITE Fabric ROSES & WAX BUDS

This is an amazing large framed and glassed keepsake casket that contains the souvenirs a poor class woman can have of her life... The casket is certainly home-made, it is a wooden box with a glassed frame as a sealed lid. To the inside bottom, the owner has stuck her certificate of First Communion with top French lettering that can translate "Precious memory for the faithful soul". We can read her name and celebration date : Aurélie Caillau - 26 mai 1918 in the church of Villeneuve d'Astarac, a small town in the French department of Gers, S-O of France.

Then when she got older and married, she included her wedding bouquet made of white fabric roses and leaves and wax buds, a bit timeworn and faded as commensurate with age more than 100 years... The box is 18.75" x 12.75" x 4"H, the bouquet inside is about 14" L x 10 W. The frame is a bit distressed and chipped as shown adding to the vintage charm A PRECIOUS BROCANTE FIND FULL OF NOSTALGIA.. PLEASE VIEW ALL MY PICTURES WHICH ARE IMPORTANT PART OF THE DESCRIPTION!! A TRUE TIMEWORN TREASURE FULL OF FRENCH ROMANCE...
