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 from filigree metal in a pale silvery gold colour in the form of a three dimensional flower which is built up in layers. Two long tines secure it in the hair.

FURTHER INFORMATION:

Fashions in hair dressing changed in the last ten tears of the 19th century. The styles were simpler and a softer, fluffier appearance was fashionable. Along with these softer and more feminine coiffures hair accessories grew smaller, lighter and more delicate. Airy openwork designs, such as those of filigree were popular.

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.
