Flower dome

We saw a number of these odd grave ornaments, dating from the 1950s I think. None of them were intact, but we found enough parts to work out that they were white plaster flowers (and clasping hands in one case) inside a glass cover, under a wire mesh. This one had cracked and lost the flowers, but moss had grown inside like a natural bottle garden.
