Silver Wedding Veil or Hair Ornament from Yemen

Probably Early 20th Century


The high finely-chiseled chain at the crown of this ornament is 1 inch. Below the crown is suspended an elaborate fringe of hollow cast bells. The hinged lattice chains below the fringe were made to curve around the face of the bride. This veil was meant to be made for a bride of a high status.
