This stunning hair comb is made from dyed French Ivory, a process involving camphor and celluloid to create a synthetic substance which resembles Ivory and which was popular from around 1860.

The comb is exquisite with its open work "filigree" design. Atop four "prongs". What a statement it would have made worn in the chignon hairstyles that were popular at the time.

The condition is excellent for the age with no cracks chips or repairs. Please see the photographs for clarification.
