I recently bought an entire collection of wonderful antique tortoise shell hair combs, ornaments, tiara combs and this beautiful ornamental comb is a rather rough one, but since it's the only one of its type, and remains useful and lovely, we'll offer it as it is! There are, admittedly, a few missing 9k gold (tested) pique 'pins', it's truly something special. Makes me wish I had long thick beautiful hair to pull back and make use of these beautiful vanity items, but alas, they are for those of you who do, and only for me to enjoy in passing. Don't miss them. We can never seem to keep them in inventory, and it's either feast (as now) or famine (as soon).
Poor to good condition, with quite a lot of bug bite damage visible on the fully arched old Victoriain comb, and just a few missing 9k yellow gold pique pins to keep them from being excellent. The tines are far worse in our images, enlarged as they are, than they appear to the eye, but we do want you to know it's imperfections. We've sanitized these items; they're ready for you to use and enjoy, and pass along as heirlooms for another century or so.
