Although eyes were certainly drawn to the high, fan-shaped headdresses that Qing-dynasty women affixed to back of their heads, it was the finishing touch of a hairpin or two that completed the look. Attached to the front of a fine lady’s coiffure, this silver hairpin ends with an intricate butterfly, a symbol of happiness and conjugal bliss. Created amid the Art Deco boom in major cities such as Shanghai, Tianjin, and Canton, this elegant pin would have been a trendy addition to traditional and modern hairstyles alike.

“PAGODA RED was extremely supportive in helping to pull accessory options together for the Lake Forest Showhouse. After providing them with details and our vision on how we were looking to finish our space, Laurene helped curate options that made it easy for us to edit and finalize. It's also no surprise that the unique pieces we used in our showhouse space were some of the first to sell.”
