Comments : These traditional Japanese Kanzashi hair ornaments were made to adorn the elaborate up-swept chignon hair-dos worn by Japan's elegant Geishas. This set is boxed in silk lined purple velvet , and although both pieces fit in the box, the recessed compartment for the comb is not a perfect fit .
Both the comb and two-piece hair pin are beautifully decorated on both sides in an intricate floral and fan motif , tinged with a hint of red. ......
Recently purchased in the fascinating port city of Astoria Oregon, the oldest United States settlement on the Pacific Coast . ......
As always professionally packaged for a proper presentation.
