This antique hair comb seems to combine the best of the late 1800s styles...Art Nouveau, Arts & Crafts, and the Egyptian Revival.
The comb is handmade of a solid sterling silver winged top and a more sturdy silvertone metal for the teeth portion. The wings are hand hammered and etched.
The focal point of the comb is a beautiful carved genuine natural amber scarab in a rare egg yolk color. The winged scarab symbolized self-creation or rebirth and was a popular motif during the Egyptian Revival period.
The comb measures 2 inches across by 3 inches high. It weighs 28.8 grams. It's unmarked. The sterling was acid-tested to confirm.
Excellent antique condition. Circa 1910.
