FURTHER INFORMATION:

This is an ornamental Japanese hairpin of the type known as Kanzashi. This is a kind of umbrella term which covers ornaments of many types. Hairpins such as these were usually stuck into the coiffure in such a way that the ornamental heading or top stood out proud from the hairdressing by several inches.

Kanzashi hairpins can easily be worn with a modern hair style such as a high up do or French pleat. They look most effective when placed in the traditional way with the ornamental ball or bead standing out proud from the surface of the hair.
