A handsome Art Deco period bandeau comb in black celluloid

CONDITION: good vintage condition

SIZE: 3 ins h x 5 ins w (7.5 x 13 cm)

APPROXIMATE DATE: 1910s – 1920s

MATERIALS: celluloid

DESCRIPTION:

Here is an attractive hair comb which was specifically designed to be worn on the rear of the dressing. It is made from glossy black celluloid and dates from the Art Deco period of the early 20th century.

The comb is made all in one piece and has a geometric feel to the decoration. This comprises an openwork zigzag border along the top of the curved heading with further ornamentation set beneath.

The collage picture includes similar examples taken from contemporary photographic sources of the Edwardian and early Art Deco periods, and shows the fashionable hair dressing of the day.

FURTHER INFORMATION:

A back comb is a type of hair accessory specifically designed to be worn at the back of the hairdressing above, below or within the chignon. It is usually identified by a deep curve made to fit the skull. These combs are usually wider than they are high, and have an elaborate heading or top decorated in some way.
