A striking parti colored hair comb from the Art Deco period

CONDITION: good vintage condition

SIZE: 5½ ins h x 5½ ins w (14 x 14 cm) decorative part 3 ins h (7.5 cm)

APPROXIMATE DATE: 1910s – 1920s

MATERIALS: celluloid

DESCRIPTION:

Here is a striking parti coloured hair comb made in the Spanish style, with a fan shaped heading. It comes from the Art Deco period of the early 20th century.

The ornament is an example of laminate celluloid, also known as celluloid overlay. This produced a two tone effect by layering two pieces of coloured celluloid together, sometimes carving or incising designs to expose the contrasting colors. Here we see a foundation of jade green overlaid by a shiny black upper shell to form a swirled design full of movement and excitement.

The collage picture includes similar examples taken from contemporary photographic sources of the late early 20th century.
