Title: Antique Kanzashi with the peony and butterfly motifs

Description
 Kanzashi (簪, ornamental hairpin) is a kind of traditional Japanese accessory. It is used to keep the bound hairstyle. Some people use it just as an ornament for the head.

 The peony is designed for this Kanzashi. Peony represents happiness, wealth, nobleness, and gorgeousness. This flower pattern has been treated as a kind of good-omen motifs that become a rich harvest sign. On the backside, you could see the butterfly. As this insect changes its looks, it symbolizes reborn; therefore, Samurai loved the butterfly pattern. Also, this motif represents happy marriage because butterflies make a couple on good terms.
