Measuring 7 1/2" by 1 1/2" these are die cut stamped with "Twin Cut Made in British Make: and Non-Flammable. Why would they want us to know they were Non -Flammable? Because up to this time a lot of combs were made from celluloid which is highly flammable and this galalith made comb was a big improvement. The manufacturers were "Keronyx" and I received a dozen of these in a box with the label which I have photographed. Keronyx was the one of the brand names that galalith or milk stone was given in Britain. The cow symbol giving you the idea that it comes from milk. You can see where they stamped the words "Twin cut, British made" and they would have done this with a metal stamp as galalith cannot be molded. These combs have never been used as they are new/old stock. Don't leave these combs near water as it will absorb the water and warp or break and that is it's one flaw. This comb interested me as I have very thick hair and a lot of the modern combs just won't go through my hair but this one has a lot of heft and gets the job done!
