Fabulous Antique Circa 1860 Cut Steel Hair Comb (As FoundFabulous Antique Circa 1860 Cut Steel Hair Comb (As FoundFabulous Antique Circa 1860 Cut Steel Hair Comb (As FoundFabulous Antique Circa 1860 Cut Steel Hair Comb (As Found

This is an amazing cut steel hair comb with a top ;in riveted cut steel which consists of three lines of heavy cut steel. Each line has small faceted cut steel pieces to form flower roundels. Between these flowers are faceted diamond shaped cut steel pieces and the whole top of the comb is riveted. The pieces of cut steel are individually cut and all the stones are riveted into the brass back of the comb. What painstaking work. These cut steel accessories were meant to mimic diamonds, and, in a lighted ball room, they must have had a tremendously brilliant effect. Lovely antique piece.
Condition: Two of the tines have been broken off and secured firmly back on. As the comb part of this is very simple, I am sure a jeweler could affix this top to another antique comb bottom, but I am selling it as is.
Size: 5 1/2 by 4 inches.
