Ukrainian bridal headdress that was used in the 19th – the beginning of the 20th century in some regions of the country. It is a modern reconstruction based on written sources.
The headgear consists of a bridal wreath (made from artificial flowers, decorative springs, and wax beads) and many colorful ribbons. The wreath is actually not a one-piece item; it is built up from bits and pieces – you can see one of the artificial flowers in the box in one of the photos.
Also, as you see in this case, the ribbons are under the hair – that’s because they are gathered on one ribbon which is tied to the bride’s head under the wreath.
