French Empire Regency Era Faceted Coral & Gilt Tiara
An exquisite regal tiara from the Napoleonic Regency (ca1800's) era! This beautiful and unusual piece is made of gilded brass and decorated with fine filigree wirework and hand cut coral. Thirteen teardrop shaped coral stones represent the points of the tiara and a row of faceted coral stones form a single row at the base. The tiara is in excellent condition but it is missing the original comb. It could easily be affixed to ones head with the aid of hair pins. An absolutely beautiful piece, this stunning tiara would make a fabulous addition to any collection!
Measurements: Measuring along the curved base measures approximately 7.5" wide, 1 3/8" tall and 1/4" thick.
Condition: The overall condition of the tiara is great. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the gilded brass setting and all of the coral stones are intact.
