Bridal Crown

Metal bridal crown or diadem with an eyebrow shaped base or rim and turban-style ornamentation. This piece is much more delicate that 1999.44, although the metal pendants are larger; they are flat with impressed motifs, and mall turquoise insets with gallery wire surrounds. There are three dark red glass insets in the 'cintamani' shape on the uppermost turban-style ornament. Below these are two white and one pink glass beads. There is one central pendant from the rim bearing three further pendants; to the right of this central pendant are eight more (4 missing), to the left are eleven (2-3 missing).
