Japanese Kanzashi Hair Pin Ornament of Bride's A Pair
A pair of Bira Bira Kanzashi, a dangling hair ornament from the 1930s. It came from Nigata prefecture, in the northern part of Japan. It is typically worn as adornment by Hanayome, a bride , so it is decorated with many auspicious motifs. There are a Mino-kame, straw raincoat turtle with Tsuru, crane which motif are used most at weddings as husband and wife. The most auspicious Japanese motif, Sho-Chiku- Bai, ( Japanese pine, bamboo and plum ) and Japanese pine boughs and bamboo symbolize longevity, plum flowers indicate nobility and are nicely attached to ornate base. The dangling chains give a great accent when they are worn in the hair. They are oxidized which turned into gorgeous patina through the years and this is the original shape ( You can probably shine them if you prefer shining ) .A few dangling chains, pieces on the ends, and bamboo leaves are missing ,also the turtle is welded on the back. It is unusual to come still in a pair, so not only fantastic collection, but also they will be wonderful gift for your family and friends who are going to get married or have anniversaries. The top of bamboo and chains are 3.25 " H with 9.25 " Long Pins ( 8.3 cm H x 23.5 cm Long )
