Woman's dress ornament. A single piece of dark purple cord is heavily knotted into three descending ‘t’ shaped patterns. Below, the cord is tied in such a way as to allow it to fall into eighteen long loops that are wrapped at top and bottom with gold metallic wire. The ends of the cord hang between these loops. A round, textured metal broach is attached above the ornament’s midpoint. At its centre sits a jade rose holding two small metal leaves. At the back of the brooch is a stick pin.
