Netherlands, Bussum, February 2009

My entry for Guess What Friday is a picture of two (identical) "Guesswhats" which I saw being used by my grandmother when I was a child. We inherited these beautiful tools and we therefore know their purpose, just only because I saw them "in action". But can YOU guess its purpose?

Your grandmother was waring a regional costume? Some decoration on the head?

It is not so much a decoration used on cloth, but rather a (decorative) tool for daily use!

I do not know the name.
But I think these are the pins to keep traditional head coverings in place.
