APPROXIMATE DATE: 1820-1830s

MATERIALS: cut steel

DESCRIPTION:

Here is a fine late Georgian cut steel tiara dating from the early part of the 19th century.

The ornament comprises an arched band which is surmounted by a series of rosettes. The rosettes have a large steel stud set in the centre surrounded by eight smaller pieces, representing the petals.

A feature to notice about these early cut steel pieces is the number of facets in the surface of each stud. The close up photographs show that here the studs have between 15 and 20 facets each. Later Victorian pieces have far less.

Production of cut-steel goods began in the early 1800s and continued until the end of the century, although the later examples tend to be very crude in comparison with earlier ones.

FURTHER INFORMATION:

Cut steel combs and tiaras are characteristically made with headings covered with studs of faceted steel and riveted to a backing plate of white metal. The construction of the comb can be studied in one of the close up photographs which shows the way in which the individual rosettes were mounted upon the metal backing.

The use of cut steel is very characteristic of the Victorian period. Production of cut-steel goods began in the early 1800s and continued until the end of the century, although the later examples tend to be very crude in comparison with earlier ones.
