A wonderful late Edwardian, teens to early 1920's millinery flower for trimming a hat. This delightful bouquet combines store brought dried and artificial flowers with hand made flowers. At the one end of the flowers are a series of hand made pink fabric buds.
Using a clear glass ball, each bud was wrapped in silk, wired and tied together in a clump. Behind the buds, a colorful iridescent disc, made in a stiffened fabric, make the whole arrangement a showy piece.
At the opposite end are two daisy-like flowers made of a plush. Each stem is a chenille pipe cleaner. End of stem is wrapped in wire. A nice curvature of the arrangement to decorate a brim /crown of a hat.
Size, following the curve, it is 14-1/2"long. Width is 5" wide, at the widest point. 1-1/2" tall , at the tallest point.
Condition: for the type of arrangement, the condition is decent but not perfect. Several of the glass balls of the buds are missing with the fabric torn. Some of the leaves are wobbly, loosely attached.
Still a marvelous piece of millinery trim from a long ago past.
