Antique French Crown to commemorate the Royal Wedding

Isn't this a lovely crown? Even with missing stones, and a bit bent, it is one of my favorite pieces. I would think this piece is turn-of-the-century. When I was on a book tour in London many years ago, I spent a day in Covent Gardens. While wandering through floors of antiques, I found this piece.  I was told that it was a French piece. It is made from stamped brass. The crown is adjustable and would probably have been used for a  first communion service.
