Lebanon - Married Druze Woman with Tantour hat

The traditional vertigious tantour hat of a married Druze (a monotheistic religious community) woman of Lebanon (sadly not an example of the popular trend to replicate the landscape of late 19th century Sheffield at parties in Damascus...!!). The tantour, similar to the hennin (worn in the late Middle Ages by European women of the nobility), was popular in the Levant during the nineteenth century, but seldom seen after 1850 - making this card somewhat of a rarity. The height of the tantour was proportional to the wealth of its owner. Date: circa 1910s

EDITORS COMMENTS
This photograph captures the image of a married Druze woman from Lebanon, proudly wearing her traditional tantour hat from the early 1910s. The tantour, a vertiginous headdress with a chimney-like structure, was a distinctive symbol of Druze women's marital status and wealth in the Levant during the nineteenth century. Similar in style to the European hennin, which was popular among the nobility in the late Middle Ages, the tantour was a rare and surprising sight after 1850. The height of the tantour was directly proportional to the wealth of its owner, making this headpiece an esteemed and valuable possession. The woman in the photograph wears her tantour adorned with intricate jewels and jewellery, adding to its grandeur and allure. The unusual and bizarre design of the tantour, with its pointed and impractical shape, further emphasizes its status as a symbol of Druze women's unique cultural identity. The Druze are a monotheistic religious community, known as Unitarians or Unitarians of the Faith of Abraham, with a rich history and complex beliefs. Originating in the eastern Mediterranean, the Druze community has a strong presence in Lebanon, Syria, and Israel. This photograph offers a glimpse into the past, providing a fascinating look at the traditional attire and customs of the Druze people during a time when the tantour was still in fashion. The tantour's striking appearance and historical significance make this photograph a rare and valuable find, offering a unique insight into the cultural heritage of the Druze community in Lebanon during the early 20th century.
