The name is derived from the French "night vigil", it was often used at the bedside of babies and invalids. Given to brides on their wedding day, the Veilleuse would keep them company with their warm and comforting glow on their wedding night. Most popular between 1750 to 1870's, each is a miniature work of original art.
