Jewel of the day: Alhambra Antiques Gilt Brass and Glass Tiara

I am not sure where this was made (thinking Czech or Chinese) or for what purpose, but it’s pretty fantastic. Offered by Alhambra Antiques, it is described as, “19th century gilt brass repose and trembles tiara with red, green and clear facet cut glass jewels. Very intricate work. Center rosette attached to spring for trembleuse effect. One stone missing from rosette, 3 small stones missing from surrounding area. Width 6″, height 4″.”

This sells for USD$925, so being king (or queen) of your own castle is within reach.
