Antique Pair of Japanese Bira Bira Hair Ornaments
A highly detailed Antique pair of rare hand made Geisha Kanzashi bira bira hair ornaments. Hand made during Japan’s early to mid Meiji Era between 1860s to 1890s. Intricate and delicately decorated with gilt brass and silver Sakura Cherry Blossom flowers, leaves and natural pink coral. Long silvered streamers intersected with gilded butterflies also create a stunning effect. Catching and reflecting a dance of light beams with each movement. One Kanzashi is very well preserved. The second is missing 3 streamers and a butterfly on a fourth streamer. They are still beautiful and wearable works of art from a generation dedicated to fine and detailed workmanship. Sold as is.
