This is such a rare and desirable headpiece! In very good condition for its age with only minor tarnishing that can be buffed easily to a brighter shine. It might need minor adjustment to make sure the extension pieces work appropriately. I have had several of these over the years in my collection. This one is the only one with green beads. The beads look old but not sure if original or an early replacement. The imitation ivory pearls they were often used were very fragile and those I've seen sold in recent times are usually missing the pearls or being sold in a broken state, not to mention missing the enamelled droplets. Whatever the origin of the beads (and not discounting they are original to the piece), they are fabulous and much in keeping with the design and aesthetics of the piece.
