A large and handsome Art Deco celluloid hair comb in the Spanish style

CONDITION: CONDITION: good vintage condition

SIZE: 7 ins h x 5 ins w (18 x 13 cms)

APPROXIMATE DATE: 1910s – 1920s

MATERIALS: celluloid

DESCRIPTION:

Here is a very beautiful and large dark brown celluloid hair comb dating from the Art Deco period. It has a very high curved heading done in an organic asymmetric design which resembles leaves, inclined to the left.

The collage picture shows examples of the large fashionable hair combs of the period and is taken from contemporary sources of the early 20th century.

FURTHER INFORMATION:

This type of ornament is often known as Spanish or mantilla comb because it resembles a smaller version of the traditional large 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.
