Antique Vintage Paste Star Tiara with Hinged Comb Victorian Edwardian Art Nouveau
Description: This is a gorgeous, old, paste tiara set with foiled, closed-back stones in a copper-finished metal. The stars really make this piece and when you wear it, you will be the star wherever you go! The paste stones are made of faceted glass that has been cut to look gemstones. They are foiled and set with a closed back. The foil gives them extra sparkle but be sure that you do not get the stones wet or the foil can become damaged and the stones will appear discolored. The tiara affixes to the hair with a lovely, hinged tortoiseshell (presumable faux tortoiseshell) comb. Overall, a very glamorous, celestial-themed piece that would be wonderful for a wedding, another special occasion, or for anything you choose! This lovely late 19th or early 20th-century piece is one of several celestial-themed items listed at present so be sure to see my other listings if you can't get enough stars and moons. Materials: Glass stones, foil, unknown non-magnetic metal, faux tortoiseshell comb, metal hinge. Approximate Measurements: Tiara: 4 inches across and 1 3/8 inches tall. Comb: 2 inches wide and 2 inches long. Condition: Good condition with wear in keeping with age and use including normal wear to the metal and stones. There is one stone missing front and center.
