CHINESE ANTIQUE HAIR ORNAMENT

THIS IS A BEAUTIFUL ANTIQUE HAIR ORNAMENT THAT MY FATHER WHO WAS A SEA CAPTAIN BROUGHT BACK FROM CHINA FOR MY MOTHER. I NEVER SAW HER WEAR IT BUT SHE TOLD ME ABOUT IT AND SHE KEPT IT IN HER CEDAR CHEST. IT IS 5" WIDE AND 4 1/2" LONG. IT IS MADE OF JADE AND CORAL AND TURQUOISE. FEATHERS. THE TURQUOISE ARE THE FEATHERS FROM THE KING FISHER BIRD WHICH BECAME EXTINCT BECAUSE THEY KILLED ALL OF THEM FOR THE FEATHERS. THIS HAIR PIECE WAS WORN BY THE LADIES OF THE IMPERIAL COURT.THIS PIECE BELONGS TO A COLLECTOR OF FINE ANTIQUES. HAPPY BIDDING
