Pair of Victorian WAX FRUIT Display Art Under Glass Domes
Vintage " Premier " 9ct Gold Semi Automatic Pocket Petrol Lighter Pat No. Colours may differ due to any flash used. This is a pair of Victorian glass domes on wood bases.. Inside they have both got WAX fruit... Which has been made to look life like with silk cut out leaves too... They are both arranged on a red wire basket like bottom section... The wax has been painted... And typical of the era and time they have been under the glass domes.. Some of the colour has faded..... Some of the wax fruit has MELTED... I wouldnt advise these sort of things in windows or where the sun can shine in... You could easy end up with a dome full of melted wax.
There are various fruits in the arrangement. At the outside of the dome there is a band of material which has got clear glass beads sewn onto it.. These both match as well.. The glass domes sit in a recess on the wood bases. One is slightly taller than the other..
But they are supposed to be a pair. The domes are approx 6 and half inch tall x 5 inch dia wood base. Please see close up pictures for more detail. The item(s) are shown next to an English 1 penny which is 20mm dia for scale.2.5cm = 25mm = 1 inch. Once an item is the in the postal system any delays are out of my cont rol.
