Described as brass and natural seed pearls, but I think the flowers are gilded silver filigree, and only the pin and springs are brass.
The whole piece measures 14cm (5 1/2") long and each flower 2cm, spring stem is approx. 5cm (1.7/8") long.
Even if it may looks like some Chinese Qing dynasty hair ornaments, as it is all white, without coral, enamel or kingfisher parts, I feel it to be european, regional.
Though I sometime need seed pearls for repairs, I won't dismantle this charming hair pin.
