1920's Rare Art-Deco Brass Egyptian Revival Flapper Headpiece

About

These beautifully hammered metal art-deco headpieces were the “must haves” of the roaring 1920’s Egyptian revival period. It is fashioned with green-enamel drops and faux pearls dripping from a circular motif decorated tool bar. The pearl loop is attached to a metal rod that moves freely in a circle so as you move your head they will stay draped properly. Bilateral design and head brass bars are adjustable either way. The headpiece can be slightly bent by hand to match your head and then hammered down to keep that shape. This 1920's headpiece is in excellent condition with no damage or repairs. Only sign of age is some natural patina that is fairly even all over. This patina makes these pieces beautiful and truly antique. Headpiece does adjust to fit up to a 24 inch head comfortably.
