Vintage Hair Comb Art Moderne Pale Blue Rhinestone Hair Accessory

A BEAUTIFUL CLEAR AND PALE BLUE HOLLYWOOD REGENCY HAIR COMB

SIZE: 2 x 1¾ ins (approx 5 x 4 cms)

CONDITION: good vintage condition

APPROXIMATE DATE: mid 20th century

DESCRIPTION:

This beautiful and rather glitzy hinged comb features a formalised wreath motif set with large prong set clear rhinestones in both spherical and marquise shapes. Some of the stones have a bluish caste to them.

The heading is set on a rotating hinge which attaches it to the clear Lucite comb mount. This means that the ornament is adaptable to various positions within the hair and grips firmly.

It is made in the elaborate neo-Baroque style which came into fashion from the early 1950s and probably dates from the mid to late 1950s or 1960s

The final illustration is taken from a magazine advertisement of the period which shows similar combs

FURTHER INFORMATION:

The Baroque or neo-Baroque was a revival style of the mid 20th century. It was pure glamour and glitz, favouring glittering rhinestones combined with coloured stones and materials, faux pearls and elaborate gold or silver tone settings. In the USA this style is often called Hollywood Regency from its popularity in the movie industry of the period.
