Antique Japanese Meiji Period Gold Lacquer hair ornament, Kougai

A beautiful Japanese hair ornament. Featuring a delicate golden lacquered pattern. Japanese hairornaments such as this one have been used since the ancient Jomon period, and the ornamental comb became an important symbol status in Japan beginning in the 17th century. Not only did the gorgeous combs have a functional and aesthetic purpose, but they also served as expressions of a woman's wealth, class, and religion. Good condition as shown on the images.
