DESCRIPTION:

Here is a very beautiful rhinestone Spanish style hair comb dating from the Art Deco period. It has a fan shaped heading which is closely encrusted with green and blue rhinestones to give the effect of a peacock’s tail.

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 is often called a mantilla comb.

FURTHER INFORMATION:

The final illustration shows a selection of sitters wearing similar ornaments and is taken from contemporary sources of the early 20th century.

Ornaments like this were worn in a characteristic manner, being placed such a way that the tall heading stood up proud. This enabled them to be viewed from all angles and for the details to be seen effectively outlined against the light.
