Queen Victoria Chairs. These gorgeous chairs are named after Queen Victoria, who was the ultimate trendsetter of a lavish white wedding gown and white wedding. Though Victoria was not the first to wear white, she is, however, known to have worn the wedding gown that “started it all”. She chose a cream-colored satin gown, in a time where wearing white was highly uncommon. Commenting on Victoria’s choice for white, the Godey’s Lady’s Book wrote, “Custom has decided, from the earliest ages, that white is the most fitting hue, whatever may be the material. It is an emblem of the purity and innocence of girlhood, and the unsullied heart she now yields to the chosen one.” All we have to say is thank you, Queen Victoria! These chairs are a shimmery-cream silk to resemble the “dream dress” and perfectly compliment any blissful white wedding. Perfect for wedding decor display or as “His & Her” banquet chairs. Circa 1960. 25″ Width x 30″ Height.
$48 per chair (2 chairs available)
“My dearest dearest dear Albert sat on a footstool by my side, and his excessive love and affection gave me feelings of heavenly love and happiness, I never could have hoped to have felt before! He clasped me in his arms, and we kissed each other again and again! His beauty, his sweetness, and gentleness, -really, how can I ever be thankful enough to have such a husband! To be called by names of tenderness, I have never yet heard used to me before – was bliss beyond belief! Oh! This was the happiest day of my life! May God help me to do my duty as I ought and be worthy of such blessings.”
