DESCRIPTION:

Here is a handsome back comb made in creamy beige coloured celluloid. It dates from the early part of the 20th century when back combs were popular.

This type of ornament is known as a back comb. Such ornaments were specifically designed to be worn at the back of the head. They are identified by their width and by a deep curve to fit the back of the skull. These combs are usually wider than they are high, and have an elaborate heading or top decorated in some way.
