Go ahead and gasp! That is what I did–when my parents brought this museum worthy, antique Chinese headdress back home from a visit to China in the late 1980’s. Amazing detail, all accomplished with intricate wire and metal work then covered in the prized kingfisher feathers. This amazing piece is wire mounted to black velvet inside the frame and the shadow box mat is also black velvet with a gold mitered edge. The headdress measures approximately 12″x12″x 2 at the highest point. The wooden shadow box frame is has a gold finish and the mitered edging is also gold finished. It measures 21.25″X21.25″x3. In terms of imagery, there are 9 figures with charming, individualized carved heads. Each face is also hand painted. There are two dragons that are wired to float above the back support and wiggle when the headdress is moved. The woman who once wore this must have made quite a dramatic entrance! Below the dragons, I count 8 phoenix birds with highly decorative blue feathered tails. One large coral bead and one amber? Bead are found at either end of the headdress. There are also 8 Chinese symbols, each with a white jade? Bead in the center, that run 4 on either side. None of the decorative elements are missing. At this point in time the shadow box has been opened 4 times to clean the glass. Small nails need to be removed to lift the back off. Due to its unusual beauty and age, my family has tried not to disturb it much. The feathers are fragile so keeping it protected under glass has helped it remain in great condition. Sorry, no international sales. I have no control over this process. It is truly a gorgeous piece of Chinese history and I thank you for your interest.
