Wedding-Rice favor. A few ounces of rice tied up in white netting with a white lace ribbon. The rice sits bundled at the bottom topped by a tightly-tied white lace ribbon. The remaining netting poofs out festively at the top in pointed peaks.
Item from the wedding of George and Ourania Gatsis on October 10,1922.
This is a bundle of wedding rice which would have been thrown at a GReek orthodox wedding. The rice, in Greece, symbolizes roots, and that the man and woman should put down roots together in life.
