This handsome pair of side combs dates from the mid 20th century, probably the 1950s – 1960s.
They are made in black celluloid with the wide split prongs of the period. The heading is formed into the shape of a bow. This is encrusted with glittering clear rhinestones, having small metal dots placed between.
This technique of massing rhinestones with metal dots in between seems to have been very popular in the mid 20th century and certainly enhanced the glittery effect of the decoration.
