This little comb is very cool. It is well made in design and flips up so the metal top drapes over your hair. Or, you can leave the flip down and sport it as a small mantilla pick.
The metal is a platinum color and the paste glass stones are black and clear to black diamond (more of a smokey color) depending on the light they are given.
The construction of the piece on the back is held together with low light gold tone fixtures.
The comb itself is early plastic and done in a pretty tortoise shell.
It does have a mark that looks to be a production number of 72
The comb is just about 2 1/4" at it's tallest point and 1 3/4" across it's widest points.
Overall good Vintage Condition. As you can see in the pictures some of the teeth are bent but they're secure. The biggest issue is that some of the stones have shifted and you can see some glue if you look carefully. It might be able to be carefully removed.
Please also note that most often you'll view pictures that have been taken with and without a flash on to give you the full range of the item we're presenting.
Keeping in mind that vintage items are pre-owned and rarely are they out of the box perfect and one should expect some age appropriate wear. We leave any cleaning or polishing of Vintage Items to you.
Of course we will be sure to make note of anything we see that might be of issue to you or any noted repairs that we can see but please feel free to ask any questions.
