An unusual bright amber coloured stand up hair comb from the Art Deco period

CONDITION: good vintage condition

SIZE: 6 x 3 ins (15 x 7.5 cm) decorative part 3½ ins (9 cm)

APPROXIMATE DATE: 1890s – 1900s

MATERIALS: celluloid

DESCRIPTION:

This attractive hair comb has an unusual bright amber mottled effect and is made from dyed celluloid.

It has a high wedge shaped heading which comes to a point in the centre. This kind of design is typical of the Art Deco period when tall and somewhat narrow headings were one of the fashionable shapes.

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.

FURTHER INFORMATION:

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.
