I always worry a little when I sell these antiquewax tiara's as they are clearly delicate and very old.
This one is so charming because it came with a set of antique wedding bells!
The tiara is built upon a simple, quite wide headband, covered in white satin. It has a curved band of fabric green leaves to cover the band, then the flowers and blossoms are wired to the front.
The wires go round to the back of the head to secure.
There has been some loss of blossom, minor, with one small area a little bare, so please study the photo's with care. Some of the petals are also a little crushed and damaged. A liitle remnant of tulle is attached to the back but this is very easy to remove. I think most people add their own fine trims to make individual.
The bells are 'silver' of course! There are 4 of them, mildly tarnished to the lower parts, and all wired together into a little bouquet. They were then covered with silk ribbon would around but this has largely gone and needs to be replaced.
I like the Victorian bells better than the tiara!! So unusual.
Will be sent boxed. Please note I am selling a beautiful large antique veil this week. You can see it in the background but it is not part of this sale!
