An extremely rare, beautiful and unique, authentic antique Edwardian / Art Deco flapper girl beaded floral headband. The headband has a stunning large flower to the centre, made up of gorgeous white lustre beads, which look just like seed pearls, together with lovely old sparkly silver sequins and gunmetal silver seed beads forming the stamens, with a diamond paste to the centre of the flower. The headband has been completely hand-made, which is evident from all the hand stitching to the skin coloured felt on the reverse. The sequins have large holes in the centre, which you don’t find today. The elastic has long since lost its stretch, but this could very easily be taken off and replaced with ribbon, or a new piece of elastic. However, I will leave it as it is for the sake of authenticity, so that the buyer can choose how they would like it to fasten. I can include a piece of antique ribbon, if desired.
All of the beads and stones are present. There may be the odd loose thread and the elastic has lost its stretch, but the piece is in Remarkable Antique Condition. It has probably only been worn once ~ for the maker’s own wedding. I would go as far as to say it is Museum Quality.
