A beautiful Egyptian Revival Art Deco period hair comb with multi coloured rhinestone rhinestones.

CONDITION: good vintage condition

SIZE: 6½ ins h x 3½ ins w (17 x 9 cms)

APPROXIMATE DATE: 1910s – 1920s

MATERIALS: celluloid (an early synthetic)

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 five blades, to show a multi coloured design of coloured enamels, gilding and rhinestones.

The oriental theme was very strong in the early 20th century and famous actresses were often depicted on postcards dressed in this exotic style. The collage picture shows examples of these exotic hair accessories and these are taken from contemporary sources of the early 20th century

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.
