This is for one of two sets of antique sterling spun spider web large place card holders or Chinese hair ornaments from the 17th Century (Ming period or later) that I have and I can guarantee they are very rare indeed. Completely hand wrought with SIX spiders and webs that are very realistic too!. These measure 2 1/2" across and each is a bit individual from each other. In the late 1800's, Darwin's controversial theories on evolution, as well as new botanical discoveries taking place, created popular interest in the natural world. Some are typical jewelry items, for example - gem set butterflies, gold houseflies, enameled beetles, silver monkeys, etc. But there are also more unusual forms of ornaments. These can be used to hold the place cards for dinner tables and to hold a persons calling card ( because the part that fits in the hair acts a little stand) or as hair ornaments. These are really rare so don't miss out at the last minute.We offer Layaway on all our pieces regardless of which site it comes from. Please remember that vintage & antique items are not mint, nor are they perfect but they sure are full of old history and charm. Please use photos to make your decisions.
