This may well be our grandest crown in the store! It's a beautiful, large replica of an antique French Santos crown. The band is totally surrounded by beautiful clear rhinestones. The crown is topped with metal flowers that have rhinestone tipped petals and beautiful pearly-bead centers. In between the flowers and the band are multiple wonderful details: Stars, fleur de lis, and swags of rhinestones. It's a very ornate design and totally gorgeous.
This is a replica of a typical 1800's style Santos crown. The flowers on top remind us of an old tremble crown, however, there is no tremble or movement. Originally, it would have been found in a cathedral on a large statue. Those antiques are extremely difficult to find, and would cost well in to the thousands of dollars. This very well done metal replica mimics the gilt brass original.
It's perfect as a centerpiece on a table, mantle, or dresser, placed on a large statue or bust, or an addition to a vignette.
This crown stands 5 inches tall. The base measures almost 5.75" inches across. The circumference is 17 inches.
