Wedding Gifts for the Lady of the Castle


What would you buy as a wedding gift for someone who lives in a castle?

On 18 Aug 1880 Miss Sophia Dingwall-Fordyce of Brucklay Castle near New Deer, Aberdeenshire, Scotland married Alexander Taylor-Innes. I came across a write-up of her wedding as I was researching my New Deer ancestors in the Aberdeen Journal.

Here is an excerpt of this write-up, listing her "valuable" and "principal gifts"...





There were quite a few "antiques" among her gifts... I wonder from what years?
