TESSANNE

We're a bit at a loss to describe the intense beauty of Tessanne. We could start with Romance Personified, though! She is a hand-crafted, one-of-a-kind vintage headpiece of exquisite delicacy. She could be described as a half-hat, a wide headband or bandeau and we think she dates back to the 40s or 50s. Her stiff, sculpted base is covered entirely with unusual ivory lace embroidered appliqués that have a "spoked" floral motif. Woven throughout these embellishments are white vintage millinery mini-florettes and leaves. Tessanne is a work of art and would make a magnificent heirloom headpiece for a bride. And after the wedding, wear her as an utterly unique cocktail party headpiece!
