A very large red celluloid Art Deco period hair comb with modified sunray design

CONDITION: good vintage condition

SIZE: 8 ins h x 8 ins w (20 x 20 cm) decorative part 5 ins (13 cm)

APPROXIMATE DATE: 1819s – 1920s

MATERIALS: celluloid

DESCRIPTION:

Here we have a classic bright red celluloid fan shaped hair comb from the Art Deco period. The comb has formalised floral and scroll motifs and an attractive scalloped profile.

This type of ornament is often known as Spanish or mantilla comb because it resembles a smaller version of the traditional large shell ornaments worn by Spanish ladies with their native dress. In practice any comb which has a high upstanding heading or top which stands proud of the top of the head is often called a mantilla comb. Such large impressive combs are a feature of the early Art Deco period.

The collage photograph shows illustrations taken from contemporary sources and depicts similar ornaments, showing how they were placed in the hair styles of the day.
