A collection of three mid century faux tortoiseshell hair combs

CONDITION: good vintage condition with expected wear

APPROXIMATE DATE: 1910s – 1950s

MATERIALS: celluloid, metal

DESCRIPTION:

A collection of three hair combs from the early to mid 20th century.

The faux tortoiseshell Spanish style hair comb probably dates from the 1910s to 1920s period. It is of a classic type and difficult to pin down to a definite date, as is the little loop shaped hair pin with the metal top.

The comb with the “curly” metal top is typical of the mid century period and is similar to hair accessories seen on advertisements for Auguste Bonaz and other quality makers, although it is not signed.

#1 faux tortoiseshell comb measures 5 ins h x 2¼ ins w (13 x 5.5 cm)

#2 comb with curly top measures 3½ ins h x 1½ ins w (9 x 4 cm)

#3 loop shaped hair pin measures 3¼ ins h x 1 ins w (8 x 2.5 cm)


Layaway plan available for up to one year with payment by installments
