A collection of three attractive carved bone hair pins or two pronged combs
CONDITION: good vintage condition with accepted wear
APPROXIMATE DATE: 1970s
MATERIALS: camel bone
Here are three pretty Indonesian single and two pronged hair accessories made from carved bone. The material is camel bone and has the typically dry surface and minute black dots which are characteristic of that substance.
The hair pins were made for the tourist trade and I collected them myself during a trip to Indonesia in the 1970s. They originated in Java.
