Rare Find

A rare hair slide which was made in the height of the Belle Epoque period in 1910. This would have been placed in a chignon. It is wonderful to imagine how beautiful the women would have looked with their silk and lace dresses, hair swept up with a piece such as this. It is the finest gold work set with diamonds, sapphires and natural pearls on to a blond tortoiseshell comb.
