A beautiful celluloid comb with a carved appearance in the Art Nouveau taste

CONDITION: good vintage condition

SIZE: 5½ x 4 ins (approx 14 x 10 cms)

APPROXIMATE DATE: 1890s – 1900s

DESCRIPTION:

This pretty transparent celluloid comb has been made in deliberate imitation of the carved horn combs which were produced by the master Art Nouveau jewellers such as Rene Lalique and Lucien Gaillard.

The brown coloured celluloid imitates tortoiseshell at a cheaper cost and has been manufactured by machinery. Nevertheless this lovely ornament has still been hand tinted and finished with a naturalistic design of roses.

The final illustration is taken from contemporary illustrations and shows the artsy jewellery and ornaments of the day.

FURTHER INFORMATION:

Art Nouveau is a style which lasted a comparatively short period from about 1895 to 1919. It is distinguished by complex interlaced lines, naturalistic or organic motifs, and by the use of cabochon rather than facet cut stones.

The earliest Art Nouveau ornaments were handmade but as the style gained in popularity, a whole class of popular jewellery was mass produced which reproduced the typical motifs of the genre, but were produced by machine and made in synthetics.
