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 a stylized chrysanthemum blossom, a symbol of autumn and joviality. 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.

“Over the years, I’ve incorporated many pieces from PAGODA RED into my designs. Not only can they balance new furnishings (and often new construction) by feeling more established, but the pieces emanate a sense of rich history, often leaving you wondering where they were in a previous life. These beautiful pieces carefully hand-selected by the team at PAGODA RED, coupled with their unbelievable customer service, make them a must-have for any home.”
