This is a French vintage style reproduction Santos crown with a tiare feel to it - Popular for not only Santos dolls, but also for vintage style and French style decorating, as well as photography props!
Inside diameter at opening base of the crown is 5.75 inches in diameter. From top to bottom, it stands approximately 6.75 inches tall. The circumference is 18.5 inches.
It is formed by a band encrusted in prong set rhinestones in the front with twisted wire trimming out the back of the band. The star, swags and hearts that are decorating the front of the crown are all made by twisted wire. These shapes are made by hand, and imperfections are intentional. The metal is antiqued to look like aging brass. Stone colors vary between clear, amber, red and opaque. Most stones are circle with the exception of the star, which is tipped in pear shaped rhinestones.
It's perfect for Santos Doll displays, either on a large doll, mannequin, bust, or by itself. The style would be great as a large, frumpy crown on a bust or mannequin head, or as an embellishment to a boudoir or dressing table. It's a gorgeous display of vintage style religious art and French decor.
