      Part of an elaborate costume?
      I haven’t a clue, but would like to know too. The dragons are wonderful!

      I have dealt with this sort of filigree and wire, sometimes with enamel decorative piece. Usually silver with a gold finish, the silver is pliable and often with time packing and shipping, the proper placement of the added elements such as the dragons are no longer in the right position.

      I can see a lot of the small protuberance like the flames and the dragon horns have been pressed back. As far as what was it, seems it may have been an ornate cap or hat for a figurine. Now, I have not seen this before in a filigree metal form, but Chinese hats with sides that have applied elevated right and left peaks or wings is not unusual for one of the 8 immortals.

      Of course I could be wrong, but that is my sense of this very interesting piece. Thanks for posting.
