Black Satin Velvet Rose Flapper Feather Headband Headpiece by Unknown Designer
Like a George Barbier fashion illustration come to life, this early 20th century inspired band wraps the head softly with a folded black satin sash. A fixed satin knot combines gracefully with a black velvet rose on the right side. Tall black plumes surge up from the side knot, creating both a dark and playful mood. Shorter white plumes curl softly at the base, emphasizing the deft construction of black velvet leaves and rose petals.
The crisp style line created across the forehead is softened by both the ethereal black vertical plumes and the low placement of the velvet rose, effectively drawing out killer eyebrows and beautiful lashes. This flapper style headband is the perfect accessory for kicky cocktail dresses, amplifying the elegance of everything from pink chiffon to matching black satin.
Diameter: 21 inches
Band width: 2.5 inches
Feather height: 19 inches
This flapper style headband is in excellent condition. Custom made, the piece does not have a label associated with it. A black satin sash is folded and fixed to create a loose-looking headband with side-knot. A black velvet rose is attached to the lower edge of the knotted side, with tall black plumes rising out of it.
Shorter white feathers have been trimmed and curled to sit at the base of the taller plumes, providing a contrasting backdrop for the velvet rose. High-quality vintage pieces like this are yours to live in and love while increasing in value every year. It’s never too soon to start collecting them, as an investment in your wardrobe—and in yourself.
