FURTHER INFORMATION:

Hair accessories like #2 and #3 were immensely popular in the period around the turn of the 20th century. The fashionable puffed out “Gibson Girl” hair dressing needed to be supported and this was often achieved by placing a series of combs or a large barrette at the rear of the dressing. These combs and barrettes were often very lavishly adorned with metal decals and rhinestones, or other fancy treatments. The oval barrette #3 has an attractive design which is certainly influenced by the Art Nouveau movement.

The large barrettes and combs also helped to support the huge hats of the turn of the century period.
