A large and tall Art Deco hair comb in orange and red celluloid
CONDITION: good vintage condition
SIZE: 8¼ ins h x 2½ ins w (21 x 6 cm) decorative part 5 ins h (13 cm)
APPROXIMATE DATE: 1910s – 1920s
Here is a very tall and pointy comb from the Art Deco period. Combs of this type must have been very challenging to wear!
It is made from amber coloured translucent celluloid. The tall heading with its asymmetric wedge shape is inset with a bright red opaque panel, bordered in black.
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.
