This is a beautiful example of a Spanish comb. The combs were used in Spain to hold a lace mantilla. They were worn in the U.S. with long hair worn up or in a chignon. I fell sure this comb is made of celluloid, which is one of the first plastics. With all the long hair that is fashionable today, this lacy comb would look lovely placed in a knot or a chignon and really make a fashion statement.
The design is ornate with swirls and in perfect condition. This is an authentic Spanish comb and was purchased in Spain by an ancestor of mine. I have the mantilla that came with it.
