This vintage Central Asian tribal cap,hat, headdress from Afghanistan was worn by a young woman on a festive occasion, such as a wedding, and has a beautiful collection of antique silver coins on top of the cap. It was all I could do not to take them off and save them for showing to a coin dealer....

Size: cap: circumference= 20" inches(for a small head)
brim: 2.5" inches
pigtail: 17" long x 4.5" inches wide
pair of tassels on each side: 15" inches long and 1.5" wide and 2.5" wide

Colors: turquoise blue and silver dominate the cap and pigtail, with coral and orange in the tight ribbing. The one tassel has coral, white and brown dominating with multicolor small hanging tassels.

It is truly vintage showing signs of aging as reflected it's faded colors. Nonetheless, it is a great piece in that all the metal work is intact and well designed as can be seen from the image. Not only does it have large mirrors to reflect the evil eye, but real cloves strung between the regular glass beads. How innovative can you get?

When not being worn, hopefully it will become a permanent display piece, adorning perhaps a hurricane lamp in an area that needs an uplift, a touch of color, and something to talk about.
