DESCRIPTION:

Here is a pretty hair accessory from the Art Deco period of the early 20th century.

The ornament is made in amber coloured celluloid which has been further embellished with dark red rhinestones. The design is an asymmetrical one inclined over to the right. It resembles a formalised leaf or possibly a collection of fern fronds.

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.
