Additional Notes: Impressive handmade headdress from the Hluk area of Moravia decorated with hundreds of glass beads, artificial flowers, mirrors, and long painted ribbons on the back.

The tradition continued in Moravia even after woven ribbons were available again and are today seen as a characteristic element of the regional dress.
