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 stylized arrangement of flowers and vines. 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.
