Headdress, early 19th Century, Russian
Met Museum

This forehead veil is known as a venchik. Married women were required to cover their hair lest they be considered immodest, and veils such as this were worn under headdresses. The abundance of mother-of pearl beads make this a particularly fine example of Russian handcraft.
