DESCRIPTION:

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

FURTHER INFORMATION:

Art Deco is an eclectic style and drew in influences from many lands and cultures. There was a great passion for fancy costume at this period and one of the most popular was the “Spanish” look. The final two illustrations are taken from popular glamour postcards of the period. They depict actresses in Spanish influences costume with mantilla veils and high combs of exaggerated proportions.
