Solid Walnut Home Made Hanging Comb Case / Wall Pocket, Ca. 1890-1900
This wonderful comb case needs a home where it can be prominently and proudly displayed. It is a hand made item done lovingly by somebody with self-taught woodworking skills. Pieced together with solid walnut it measure 20 ½ inches long by 9 5/8 inches wide. It extends out approximately 3 ½ inches when hanging on a wall. The backing board is fret-cut and drilled so that it resembles a chain used for hanging and has a decorative element hanging from the inside at the apex of the “chain”. The comb case front is nicely carved and decorated in an organic swirl with incised elements. The piece is assembled with square-cut brads that have maintained the structural integrity of the piece over the years. The whole piece is protected with a layer of varnish. The condition is excellent. There are the expected nicks and scratches that would develop over many years of service and the varnish has some minor areas of crackling that are starting to develop. The comb case is solid showing no signs of weakness. The rich patina of the wood, the simple design elements and the functionality of the piece all work together creating a wonderful one-of-a-kind item that will appeal to any serious collector. This would be a nice piece to have hanging in your library or den with some dried flowers in it.
