A beautiful late Victorian sterling silver hair comb with turquoise trim

CONDITION: good vintage condition with expected wear

SIZE: 3½ ins h x 3 ins w (9 x 7.5 cm)

APPROXIMATE DATE: 1890s – 1900s

MATERIALS: sterling silver, turquoise

DESCRIPTION:

This beautiful comb is an excellent example of the smaller and daintier hair accessories which were worn at the end of the Victorian period.

It is made in sterling silver with an openwork design and seven metal tines beneath. The heading has an openwork lower gallery just above the tines. This is decorated with a zig zag design, set with cabochon turquoise. Placed above this are seven spherical motifs in graduated sizes, with the largest in the centre. Each sphere is raised upon a spike, and is pave set with cabochon turquoise of graduated seizes.

FURTHER INFORMATION:

Around the turn of the 20th century there were changes in fashionable hairdressing, which favoured a softer and fluffier appearance. This led to a change in hair ornaments which decreased in size. Many of these ornaments are made in openwork of filigree silver or silver gilt, with delicate airy patterns.

Much of the colour disappeared from fashionable jewelry at this period, with a predominance of diamonds or diamond substitutes being used. However pale coloured materials such as coral and turquoise were still sometimes used in these beautiful and delicate hair ornaments.
