A very unusual and collectible piece made of a native coin metal alloy referred to as gillet. This tribal headdress was made for a young Turkoman bride. The metal components are applied over a base made from an old Afghan Suzani. Set with red glass jewels, this piece features the twin headed eagle, an imperial symbol from Greece to Russia.
