Victorian CELLULOID Art Nouveau HAIR COMB with Pearls Best-Hold Bridal

Gorgeous, graceful hair comb in pearlized celluloid and topped with nine graduated faux pearl spheres, incised "Best Hold" on the back. This lovely comb features a gorgeous patina on the creamy pearlized front with the backside deepening to a butterscotch color, almost as if it had been antiqued. The celluloid has aged well and hasn't weakened (an all too common problem with early plastic hair ornaments). The graduated greyish pearls are in excellent condition, the comb is gently curved like a Spanish comb and it is absolutely fabulous!! Although the comb is wide, its size makes it perfectly wearable in a modern hairstyle. It would be delightful worn sideways to adorn a french twist, placed above a low chignon or worn coronet fashion, so as to give the effect of a mini tiara. Combs decorated with a series of balls along the top of the heading were a classic Victorian favorite, but this design lasted into the Art Deco period, as well. The comb is 5" x 3.2" and the large pearls are about 0.6" in diameter. This superb comb is in excellent vintage condition and is RARE and not the type of hair comb that comes along very often. Don't miss the opportunity of owning this rare, signed hair ornament. (MSS-4)(185)
