Full image caption

Tin mount in the shape of a woman's head and shoulders. The woman is shown wearing a square-framed headdress. Headdress frames had veils attached to them, often silk. The veils usually covered the hair. This headdress is decorated at the front with round dots, which probably represent jewels. Mounts are decorative studs, which were often used on girdles and belts.
