This is an 18th century gold plated silver crown from a large Virgin sculpture. It was acid tested and passed the high grade silver content. We have not seen anything of similar style. Most silver appurtenances that can be found are either chased or repousse technique to create an embossed design. The style used in this crown is totally different. Separate silver elements are attached to the main crown by rivets. In this case star and flower patterns with rhinestones were riveted to the crown. Roped trimmings and mounted rhinestones attached to silver springs give the crown a regal dynamic look. The crown is missing one of the flowers with rhinestone (at one of the arches), one spring with the three Rhinetones and two rhinetones at the spring tops. Provenance is Mexico but because of the style it is possible that it was imported from the Philippines.
