Beautiful sterling silver marked Victorian hair crimper/curling iron for dolls. An elaborate accessory for your doll's vanity or trunk. These were used by placing the tip on a hot stove or flame to heat the tip then curling a dolls coiffure. It will make a 1/8th " wide ringlet with a length of 2.25". The sterling handle is 2.25" long and has it's original mother-of-pearl lever to open. A rarity indeed and a must have for touching up your fashion doll coiffure. There is no damage or repairs and I have not polished this item. This was part of the fabulous Estelle Rose Johnston doll collection.
