An attractive pink moiré effect Spanish style hair comb from the Art Deco period

CONDITION: good vintage condition

APPROXIMATE DATE: 1910s – 1920s

MATERIALS: celluloid, rhinestones

DESCRIPTION:

Here is a lovely Spanish style hair comb from the Art Deco period. It has an oval heading with an asymmetric heading design which is an openwork freeform of flowers and leaves.

The beautiful pink moiré effect is one of the fancy finishes made possible by the use of the synthetic materials which came in with the 20th century. This unusual moiré effect has the appearance of old fashioned watered silk.

FURTHER INFORMATION:

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.

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.
