According to Chinese humanist and archaeologist the headdress crown was granted to high-ranking imperial minister's sister or daughter. The time frame could be in Ming Dynasty (1368 - 1644AD) or no later than early-Qing Dynasty in accordance with the imperial system of that time.

The brilliant blue color was made by Chinese Kingfisher feather. It led to the technique called Tian-Tsui or Dian-Cui in today's mandarin pronunciation on jewelery and decorative objects, i.e. the small pieces of Kingfisher feather were glued onto the surface of metal.

According to the Chinese ancient ancestry drawing, the headdress crown was used by the bride in wedding ceremony. Both metal and the feathers are fragile and humid-concern, it is rare to keep this beautiful piece in excellent condition.
