Rare Pair of Early 19th Century Vauxhall Glass Hair OrnamentsRare Pair of Early 19th Century Vauxhall Glass Hair OrnamentsRare Pair of Early 19th Century Vauxhall Glass Hair Ornaments

Vauxhall glass was made at the London Vauxhall Glassworks in the 18th and 19th century.
These mirrored pieces of glass were an early form of costume jewelry, and, at a dance or a ball, would sparkle much like diamonds.
Cut steel was used much in the same way.
These are likely Georgian, but may be a bit later.
When worn in the hair, they make a lovely decoration, and are difficult to find as a pair and in nice condition.

Condition: Minor flaws in glass, but otherwise fine for the rarity.

Size: 3 1/2 inches long. Mirrored tops are 1 1/8 inches across.

Item ID: 2014-500


Gender: Female, Age Group: Adult, Color: silver, Size: 3 1/2 inches
