DESCRIPTION:

Here is a pretty faux metal hair comb whose AB rhinestones are typical of the mid 20th century. It is made in a fashion 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 and ornate settings.

This lovely two pronged comb is made in silvery gold tone metal and is encrusted with clear and AB rhinestones in a circular filigree design.

The collage picture features contemporary illustrations of the period from fashion magazines. They show the kinds of hair ornaments and hairdressing in vogue in this glamorous period.

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.
