A superb and quite rare complete boxed set, Napoleon III (c. 1850-70, roughly, mid-Victorian). The set of ornamental hair combs, barrette, all worked in the black against brass (in the case of this set) and mounted on boiled horn that is very beautiful, undamaged. A large tiara, 2 side combs and the barrette, all matching in set, original.
Very good to excellent for age and type. The original gift box remains to protect it. The interior is silk lined and that silk is quite tattered, yet remains. The set has a look of having never been used, the barrette has a surface rub to it that looks more like a polishing issue (see images to review).
