A stunning theatrical crown for the king or queen in “Swan Lake”

CONDITION: this item has been used for theatrical productions and so the odd missing rhinestone or small repair is to be expected. However the item is in good usable or display condition.

SIZE: 5 ins h centre front x 7 ins diameter (13 x 18 cm)

APPROXIMATE DATE: 1950s

MATERIALS: lace, wire, glass and acrylic stones

DESCRIPTION:

Here is a beautiful theatrical headdress auctioned off when the costume department and props of an old opera company was closing down. This headdress was worn by the king or queen in the ballroom scene of the ballet Swan Lake when a series of princesses vie for the hand of the prince.

The crown is a complete circle, and is made from stiffened gold lace mounted upon a wire framework. It is decorated with faux pearl cabochons, rhinestones, beads and sequins. Inside is a label with the name “Derek West” (presumably the maker) but it appears to have been used for several different productions.

Being made for the theatre, rather than retail sale to consumers, the emphasis is upon the overall effect on stage. Hence the underlying construction is rather rough and ready, as is often the case with theatrical ornaments.
