This is an intricate hair comb of the mantilla-style, which is decorated with French Jet beads attached to a pierced metal frame. The actual comb is most likely to be of celluloid and is firmly attached to the decorative main piece. Hair combs of this style were often worn in times of mourning but one can easily imagine a lady with a black Maltese lace mantilla wearing such an item to make a significant statement even when not in mourning. This piece is in excellent condition for age with some slight rubbing of the blackened metal at the back but would still be very wearable or make a lovely addition to a collection of these attractive hair combs. In the very near future I will also be listing a lovely French Jet tiara and a French Jet watch chatelaine. Length 6.25 ins (15.9cm), width 4.25 ins (10.8cm). Weight 46 grams. Insured Air Mail Post with tracking to the USA would be $28.50 USD - with no tracking is cheaper. For shipping cost to other countries, please contact us.
