|This is a woman's headdress we purchased in Xia He, Gansu Province in China. The headdress is made from wool with sections of corduroy, silver, Tibetan coins,bits of coral and amber beads. The coral in the center of the silver work is a traditionally dyed coral. The amber may be synthetic. These are worn on special occasions, coming from the back of the head down over the back. Still used today, these pieces are really more used than antique and this piece dates probably back 30 - 50 years. It measures 59 inches high and 8 3/4 inches wide at the bottom. (150 x 22cm)|
