In my (near) obsession to offer the most unusual and beautiful objects, I offer this most singularly unique objet d' art for your consideration; a circa 1970's (possibly 80's) hair comb barrette. This incredibly aesthetic "wearable art" piece features a crown of feathers flowing from .22 shells affixed to an antique fork . The work, in excellent vintage condition, measures approximately 5 ½" "fork to feather", and 5" across. The barrette was found in the Mendocino County town of Ukiah, a historically noteworthy geographical center for the 1960's-1970's "back to the land" movement. Possibly Pomo Indian created, though this is not verified.
Fabulously unique and aesthetic, and very cool as it resides at the apogee of your outfit!
