A large and beautiful green celluloid Spanish style hair comb from the Art Deco period

CONDITION: good vintage condition

SIZE: 6 ½ ins h x 6 ins w (16.5 x 15 cms)

APPROXIMATE DATE:

MATERIALS: celluloid (an early collectable form of plastic),

DESCRIPTION:

Here is a very beautiful dark green celluloid Spanish style hair comb dating from the Art Deco period. It has An attractive scalloped heading which is shaped like an unfurled fan and this is a very typical configuration for hair combs of the Art Deco period. The heading is decorated with dark blue rhinestones and a classic design of scrolls and leaves.

This type of ornament is often known as Spanish or mantilla comb because it resembles a smaller version of the traditional large tortoiseshell ornaments worn by Spanish ladies with their native dress. In practice any comb which has a high upstanding heading or top is often called a mantilla comb.

FURTHER INFORMATION

The final illustration shows a selection of sitters wearing similar ornaments and is taken from contemporary sources of the early 20th century.

Ornaments like this were worn in a characteristic manner, being placed such a way that the tall heading stood up proud. This enabled them to be viewed from all angles and for the details to be seen effectively outlined against the light.
