A pretty Art Deco period hair comb with applied flower decals

CONDITION: good vintage condition

SIZE: 6 x 4½ ins (15 x 11 cm) decorative part 3 ins (7.5 cm)

APPROXIMATE DATE: 1910s – 1920s

MATERIALS: celluloid

DESCRIPTION:

Here is a pretty Spanish style comb dating from the Art Deco period. The base material is celluloid faux tortoiseshell and it is further embellished with a number of floral decals in pastel colours.

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.

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.
