Fabulous antique haircomb with rhinestone eagle. I have been selling antique combs for 40 years and have never seen one like this. Prong set rhinestones are set within brass framing in the form of a spread eagle. The framing is constructed of soldered brass ribbon, made similar to hatpins of the 1890's period. The eagle is attached to the faux tortoiseshell (celluloid, early plastic) with rivets. Construction is strong and original. The comb is 5.75 inches wide and 3.75 inches tall. The curve fits perfectly and comfortably with the shape of the head. The eagle is large, 5.5 inches. All in perfect vintage condition. All teeth on the comb are perfect, all rhinestones intact. The rhinestones for the most part look nice and clear. The bird's eye is a red rhinestone. This is a unique piece in great condition, just waiting to be added to your comb collection.
