Villesavin-Wedding treasures

Wedding treasures-the name of the small exhibition in the castle Villesavin. It offers some beautiful examples of hand-made lace probably executed in the convents, dresses made by seamstresses for this special occasions and bridal trousseaux that consisted of meters and meters of linen sheets, dozens of shirts and petty coats. Trunks and linen draws, cupboards that came together with cups and plates but the most surprising- hundreds of surviving Globes mariee, souveniers of the day, where newly-weds put bride's bouquet, crown , mirrors to cheer it up, sometimes photographs,pieces of jewellery and gilded decorations.
