1920s Original Follies Costume Tiara

This is an interesting piece. My client purchased it from a woman who collected antique costumes. She was told this was a tiara that had been used in the Ziegfeld Follies Productions around 1924-25. The Follies, where of course famous for their elaborate "flapper" productions in New York from 1907 to 1931. They where famous for their chorus girls and were quite risque for the times - my client is a long time collector so I feel assured this is most likely true, though of course I have no written proof so have priced it on its own merit. It has a decidedly costume, arts and crafts feel to it - the frame is a thick steel wire that is twisted into shape and the rhinestone are paste and prong set. It's not a glitzy, blingy piece like some are but in a way that is exactly what what makes it more appealing. It's spectacular and a real work of art.
