A pretty celluloid faux tortoiseshell hair comb with pierced oval panel

CONDITION: good vintage condition with expected wear

SIZE: 4¼ ins h x 2½ ins w (10.5 x 6 cm) decorative part 2 ins h (5 cm)

APPROXIMATE DATE: 1890s – 1900s

MATERIALS: celluloid

DESCRIPTION:

Here is a pretty example of a faux tortoiseshell hair comb from the late Victorian or Edwardian period.

The comb has a tall wedge shaped heading with an oval openwork panel, having an asymmetric design of scroll work.

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.

It is a good example of the smaller and lighter hair accessories which were popular around the turn of the 20th century.
