A pretty Indonesian aigrette hair ornament with AB rhinestones

CONDITION: good vintage condition with expected wear

SIZE: 5½ ins h x 5½ ins w (14 x 14 cm)

APPROXIMATE DATE: 1970s – 1980s

MATERIALS: metal, rhinestones

DESCRIPTION:

Here is a very beautiful aigrette type hair ornament hailing from Java, Indonesia. An aigrette is an upstanding type of hair ornament, and usually worn in the evening or for some festive occasion. The accessory was worn in such a way that it stood up proud from the top of the hairdressing, and gave the wearer both dignity and height.

This beautiful accessory is made from flexible wires which are decorated at intervals with AB and clear rhinestones. It was made for an Indonesian bride who would have worn one or more of these ornaments attached by pins to her hair or possibly sewn onto a headdress.

The ornament does not have any tines to hold it in the hair but can easily be attached as seen on the mannequin, with small hair pins. Another idea would be to mount it upon a covered headband which would not be a difficult sewing project. Side mounted head ornaments are very fashionable at the moment, for both bridal and evening wear.

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.
