I think this is such an attractive piece. This is a solid silver hair ornament, with its wonderful enamelling.
These are the sellers description. Made of silver, of a archer's bow form, with petal shaped tip, with flowers and foliage decoration, enamelled in kingfisher colours. It was made in the Qing dynasty circa 1890. This orniment measures 9.8 cm in length and weighs 10 grams.
If anybody has any knowledge of the hallmarks I would love to know what they say. They are on either sides of the back on this piece.
A very simple design but very effective, it looks great in my hair.
Many thanks for looking
