A large and beautiful Art Deco floral hair comb with multi rhinestone trim

CONDITION: good vintage condition with expected wear

SIZE: 8 ins h x 4½ ins w (20 x 11 cm) decorative part 4½ ins h (11 cm)

DESCRIPTION:

Here is a large and very beautiful comb which dates from the Art Deco period at the beginning of the 20th century. Large and handsome combs like this with multi coloured rhinestones were usually produced in the USA.

The comb has a tall roughly diamond shaped heading with a very delicate openwork design of florals placed against a lattice ground. Flower heads in dark green are scattered throughout the design, enclosed within borders of dark blue rhinestones. The backing material has been hand painted in blue and green to match the colours of the rhinestones and enhancing the rich effect.

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.
