#535 - c. 1920's Museum Quality Beaded Flapper Headdress! I always look for interesting head ornaments, barrettes, headpieces, hair combs.. and have found quite a few lovely ones in my 25+ years of collecting. However, I can say that this is without a doubt the most extraordinary beaded headpiece I have ever laid eyes on! I seriously had to think twice about selling this. And indeed kept it in my collection for a few years. Fully beaded with silver and white beads in the most amazing design. Worn over the head with beaded bands (which look a lot better on someone with hair... Brigetta is practically bald). Large amber colored glass stones on the headband and beaded tassel at the mid back. In Excellent condition for a piece this delicate. If you fine-tooth-comb it, you will find a few thread ends. but it's 99% perfect! The photos will describe it better than I ever could.
SOLD - but on display in Museum Category for Research/Study
