A handsome Spanish style hair comb from the Art Deco period

CONDITION: good vintage condition

SIZE: 6 ins h x 4 ins w (15 x 10 cms)

APPROXIMATE DATE: 1910s – 1920s

MATERIALS: celluloid

DESCRIPTION:

Here we have a fine example of an Art Deco Spanish style hair comb made in unusual pearlized effect celluloid. The colour is pale amber with a surface texture that gives the effect of old fashioned watered silk. It has a large curved semi-circular heading with a cut out design.

The collage picture shows examples of similar hair accessories and these are 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 tortoiseshell 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.
