Tiara

About this object

A tiara made from cut steel beads mounted with blue jasper medallions and pearls. Tiaras were made to sit on top at the front of an ornate hairstyle.
Wedgwood was friends with the Birmingham industrialist Matthew Boulton who was well known for his metalwork. It is very likely that this tiara was made at Boulton's Soho manufactory.
