An imposing mid 20th century Spanish faux tortoiseshell mantilla hair comb with figural design

CONDITION: good vintage condition

SIZE: 12 ins h x 12 ins w (30 x 30 cms) heading height 8 ins (20 cms)

MATERIALS: celluloid

APPROXIMATE DATE: mid 20th century

DESCRIPTION:

This oversized and seriously flamboyant headpiece is a product of the Spanish tourist industry and was probably made about the 1960s – 1970s period.

It is made from faux tortoiseshell colour celluloid with a very distinctive scalloped profile. There is a great deal going on in the heading panel!

The centre is occupied by an arch which shows a caballero attempting to restrain a lively horse. He is dressed in his best fiesta costume. He has a glass of wine in one hand which he raises in a toast. He is obviously having a very good time and possibly drunk in charge of a horse!

On the left we have a window grille, behind which some love lorne senorita is anticipated to appear. On the right is a crucifix between pots of flowers.

At the top below the scallops is a lovely floral border.

This comb is a great collector’s piece but is certainly not for the faint hearted.
