Tian-tsui Kingfisher Feather Hairpiece

$900 AUD

Tax included.

A Chinese hairpiece with pearls, gilt metal and brilliant blue kingfisher feathers.

Tian-tsui is a style of Chinese art including the use of the highly sought after and feathers of the Kingfisher bird. It has been used in China for 2000 years for its electric blue colour that was unavailable in enamelling and made possible not by the pigments of the feather itself but by the way light is reflected out of the feather.
