This lovely tiara is a traditional Indonesian ceremonial headdress, worn for part of the traditional wedding costume of Sumatra. The tiara has a traditional design of sacred and symbolic motifs in filigree gold brass which are inspired by lotus flowers.

The crown has an adjustable metal band at the back for a perfect fit. As shown in the pictures there is a fastening mechanism which can be adjusted for differently sized heads.

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, Java and other western islands of Indonesia. 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 families 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.
