Two pretty mid century rhinestone hair accessories with hinged fitting

CONDITION: good vintage condition

APPROXIMATE DATE: mid 20th century

MATERIALS: metal, rhinestones, faux pearls

DESCRIPTION:

Here are two pretty little combs dating from the mid 20th century. They are made in a style which is the USA is known as Hollywood Regency. This is a glamorous and glitzy style, influenced by the screen goddesses of the 1930s onward. It was a reaction against the austerity of Art Deco with its use of rhinestones, pearls and ornate settings.

The lovely little faux coral comb clip was a popular and versatile ornament of the mid century. It could be used to decorate the neckline of a sweater as well as an adornment for the hair. The faux pearl comb is also hinged and another popular design which I have seen with clear, pale blue and also dark green stones.

#1 pearl comb measures 2 x 2 ins (5 x 5 cm)

#2 pink comb measures 1½ x 1½ ins (4 x 4 cm)

FURTHER INFORMATION:

Hollywood Regency (or neo-baroque as it is called in the UK) is a design language made for luxury. It includes elements such as voluptuous patterns, floral ornaments and embellishments in all shapes and sizes. In jewellery and personal ornaments we find strong lines and visual contrasts of say red and gold or black and gold, as well as royal or mystical colours such as purple and mauve. Favourite motifs include scrollwork, heavy overblown flowers and fat volutes, often combined into designs which are asymmetrical. These are heavily embellished with large gemstones, pearls and rhinestones.
