This object is a bridal headband from the Egerland, a German-speaking area in the north-east part of the Czech Republic. The pendant leaves were deliberately hung loosely from their mounts, so that they flickered when worn, reflecting the light and making a noise like bells. This was intended to deflect any potential evil from the bride, and demonstrates the survival of a belief dating back to medieval times. It was given to the museum in 1908, together with some other Dalmatian traditional jewellery, by Aymer Vallance, a leading member of the Oxford Movement in the 19th century, and a supporter of William Morris’ Arts and Crafts. It was originally described as a Norwegian belt, probably due to the numerous leaf-shaped pendants.
