DESCRIPTION:

Here is an unusual celluloid high topped comb made in the Egyptian Revival style which was popular in the early 20th century. The heading rises up in a wedge shape to show a beautiful cut out design with formalised papyrus flowers. The comb is made in a beautiful turquoise moiré effect like old fashioned oiled silk. This was just one of the fancy effects made possible with celluloid.

The collage picture shows examples of popular postcard illustrations of the day when famous actresses dressed up in the Egyptian or oriental style.

FURTHER INFORMATION:

Art Deco was a sophisticated art movement which gathered in influences from a number of different t cultures, Among the most important among these was the art of the Middle and Near East

This taste for the exotic was given a fresh impetus by the discovery of the tomb of the boy king Tutankhamen in the early 1920s. The stunning treasures were an inspiration to designers in media of all forms. There was no attempt to reproduce genuine Egyptian ornaments, and the designs were a pastiche featuring Egyptian type motifs such as scarab beetles or the heads of pharaohs, or featuring typical Egyptian materials such as faux turquoise, coral or lapis lazuli.
