Antique Ormolu Jeweled Filigree Wedding Crown Tiara Paste Rhinestone Bisque Doll For Sale
Presented here for your offerding approval is this antique Edwardian era ormolu crown with ornate filigree work and sparkly prong set rhinestones! This small tiara has an ethereal quality and my guess is thatit wasproduced for use as a wedding tiara.There are 14 clear paste stones incorporated into the whimsical design.Once shiny gold, the gilt paint has darkened with timeand taken on an aged patina. Over time the crown has gained a few bends in the metal, the headband no longerfully in the round. There area fewsoldered spots in the filigree work, more readily seen with magnification. The repair work suggests to me that the lovely old crown was treasured and worthy enough to be preserved and saved for future generations. The front of the crown measures 1 3/4" tall and the headbandis 4 1/2" across at the widest point. There are small factory holes on either end of the band where a ribbon or cord would have been threaded through to tie in on. The crown is small enough that it might be used on alarge antiquedoll or religious figure for display purposes.
If you are as charmed by the crown as I am, then you may wish to viewa piece of similar interest--a crown topped ormolu frame, as seen in the last picture. Not included here,the frame is soon to be listed. Please take a look, keeping in mind that I would be happy to combine shipping!
