EXCEPTIONAL AND RARE FRENCH EARLY 19TH CENTURY DIADEM 1810-1820

A beautiful pearl diadem on a guilloche base comprising a row of pearls supporting a frieze of rosettes.

The whole is surmounted by a row of blown glass pearls. The pearls are all present at the top and only 2-3 miniatures pearls missing on the lower row.

These diadems, when found, are almost always damaged in some way. Either missing beads, damaged metal or missing original comb.

This example, for it's 200 years, is in wonderful condition. It is completely in line, not bent and all the tines are in order. These may be silver, but there is no marks, so no identification.

The diadem measures 7" across.

Price: USD $1,200
