A rare and beautiful French beadwork funerary wreath 19th C.
Exquisitely handmade from wire and glass beads. They were made in the form of floral arrangements and used for funerals and cemetery decorations. Each one of these wreaths were specifically made and are unique. This one is in very good condition and has never been hung outside.
Now a rather wonderful piece of 19th century folk art with an interesting story.
This is a particularly large example measuring.
