This is an antique Nepalese hair clip with ornate, hand hammered repousse work featuring a foliate design set with glass Ganeshas, meant to represent the coral stone Ganeshas popular in India and Nepal.

This was once a commonly found accessory for women across the middle hills of Nepal, and would have been worn on any significant occasion but certainly during weddings and festivals.  Now days it is a nearly extinct form of adornment, really only found in remote villages or amongst older women who still dress in the traditional way.
