Excerpted Information from the documentation that would have originally accompanied this objet d’art: “Lenox - The Blushing Bride - A Lenox fashion figurine in ivory fine china and gold.
This is to certify that The Blushing Bride is a historically inspired work of art created for the Ladies of Elegance Figurine Collection by Lenox. This exquisite figurine is handcrafted of ivory fine china, accented with 24 karat gold, and painted by hand. Martha A. Curren, President, Lenox Collctions.
In the Victorian era, marriage was the goal of a young woman’s life. And, as with many aspects of life in the late 19th century, bridal fashions were dictated by elaborate rules of etiquette.
The tradition of white wedding gowns began when Queen Victoria wore one at her wedding in 1840. Wearing white was considered to be a symbol of affluence, joy, and virginity, and became an absolute must for the proper Victorian bride. Prior to that, brides would simply wear their best dress.
During the 1890s, bridal fashion was inspired by the styles of the 1830s. The preferred fabric for bridal gowns was heavy white satin. And while simplicity in adornment reigned, the gowns themselves featured large, puffed sleeves, full skirts, and narrow bodices. The veil was also an important part of the ensemble and a woman wasn’t considered a ‘real bride’ unless ensconced in yards of cascading tulle.
Your Blushing Bride figurine masterfully portrays a Victorian-era bride in the Lenox Classics style of hand-painted ivory fine china, accented with 24 karat gold.”
