1920s Brass Tone Flapper Head Piece

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

A stunning, original, 1920s Brass tone Metal Flapper Deco Headpiece with emerald green enamel art deco drops and glass faux pearl loops that end in an amber colored stone (lucite? glass?) The pearl loop is actually attached to a metal rod that moved freely in a circle so in theory as you move your head they will stay draped properly since the can move with you while the rest of the head piece stays in place. These pieces were very popular in the twenties and where the crowing jewel for any flapper. - they fit perfectly atop a bobbed head or could be worked in and around the most elaborate of up-dos. Sliding, adjustable slightly hammered textured gold or brass tone metal bands at the top to fit anyone. Can be slightly bent by hand to match your head shape and then hammered down to keep that shape. Will even fit an extra large head so extremely versatile. It has a nice weight to it and these are very hard to find in such wonderful condition as this one is in!
