A beautiful vintage Indonesian Sumatra wedding tiara, crown or headdress with trembler leaves

Suitable for a rustic or vintage summer wedding.

SIZE: 3 ins h x 11 ins w (approx 7.5 x 28 cm) inner diameter of headband adjustable from 6½ - 7½ ins approx (16 – 19 cm) to fit different head sizes.

CONDITION: this vintage hair accessory was part of the stock of a wedding outfitter and has been used by Indonesian brides. Signs of wear and use and small repairs are to be expected on such items.

MATERIALS: antiqued gold tone filigree metal and decorative beads

DESCRIPTION:

The headdress is based upon a flexible band of gilded metal, surmounted by three rows of goldtone leaves with an antiqued finish. The leaves stand up in three successive rows and each leaf has red glass bead set into it. All these various elements are set upon spiral springs which cause them to tremble when the wearer moves and are soldered to the flexible headband.

This wonderful headdress would be ideal for pageants, fancy dress or possibly for a rustic wedding.

The photographs show the effect on the mannequin. The collage picture shows a selection of Indonesian traditional headpieces.

FURTHER INFORMATION:

Large and elaborate headdresses are still part of the traditional dress worn on festive and ceremonial occasions such as weddings in Borneo, Sarawak, Sumatra and other western islands. Elaborate metal headings gilded, embossed and engraved are attached to combs and worn tiara like on the front or top of the head. These are frequently accompanied by many quivering metallic pins set with rhinestones and adding sparkle.

Such hair combs and headdresses are still part of the wedding regalia for bridal couples. In the past they were passed down through families as treasured heirlooms. However many aristocratic families have become impoverished and have reluctantly sold their treasured possessions. As a result original and handsomely crafted combs and headdresses are finding their way into western collections. Complete outfits of wedding regalia for both bride and groom are now usually rented from a Pemaes or specialist company who also does the bridal make up and hairdressing for the great day.
