PORTE-BOUQUETS Remarkable jewells from the Kenber collection

A remarkable exhibition of 131 bouquet holders, tiny jewels of the 19th-century which held and kept fresh the flowers that European ladies wore to embellish their attire.

Part of the Kenber collection, these bouquet holders evoke fashions and lifestyles far removed from those of today. And thanks to their quantity and variety, we can now study and contextualise these accessories for women, examples of which are also found amongst the rich and unusual collections of the Collector's Cabinet at the Museu Frederic Marès.
