Decorative Antique Traditional Tribal Headdress: Indonesia c1920
A traditional tribal headdress from Sumatra, Indonesia. Worn for celebrations, weddings and for dance.
Made from light weight gilt metal which have been cut and embossed to form each floral and decorative element. Many of these decorative elements are on springs which make them ‘en tremblant’ which means they shimmer and move when the wearer moves which is particularly effective when worn by a traditional dance performer.
In good overall antique condition.
