A beautiful Japanese kanzashi style hair pin with coral bead flowers

CONDITION: good vintage condition with expected wear for age

SIZE: 8 ins h x 1¼ ins w (20 x 3 cm)

APPROXIMATE DATE: 1970s

MATERIALS: metal, coral

DESCRIPTION:

Here is a beautiful 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.
This example has a long metal shaft and a ball shaped heading which is studded with small metal flowers. Each flower has a coral bead set into the center. The ear pick shaped finial set at the top of the heading is a traditional Japanese feature.

FURTHER INFORMATION:

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.
