Tuesday’s Treasure: roaring 20’s

I am back to volunteering my Tuesday evenings at the Costume Museum of Canada so today you get to see the highlight from that session.  We were sorting and re-packing hats from the 1920’s and I just loved this head band!

Being the magpie that I am, I was particularly drawn to the “bling” on the head band.IMG_20160105_190454424

The blue silk is shattering but the rhinestones are still intact!  On the sides there are colorful medallions.IMG_20160105_190459763

And hanging from the medallions are 5 very long tassels.IMG_20160105_190510233

The whole thing says 20’s and art deco with a dash of tribal.  Loved it!  If I were to do a flapper kind of look I’d definitely want that head band!
