DESCRIPTION:

Here is a beautiful filigree two pronged hair comb or hair pin dating from the late 19th or early 20th century. It is made in antiqued gold tone metal in the design of a flower bud wrought in filigree. Some of the illustrations are seen from the side on view. This dainty little hair accessory may once have been part of a matched pair or possibly a set featuring a comb.

This is an excellent example of the smaller and lighter hair accessories which came into vogue in the late Victorian and Edwardian eras. Changes in the manner of dressing the hair affected the fashions of such ornaments and filigree was very popular.

FURTHER INFORMATION:

Changes in the manner of dressing the hair around the turn of the 20th century led to a taste for smaller and lighter hair accessories than those which had been fashionable for the previous 20 years. The fashionable style was now the “Gibson Girl” look, where hair was dressed out over pads in a fluffy and feminine style with wisps escaping at the sides. With these softer styles the taste was for smaller ornaments, especially those with a light, openwork appearance. Combs and hairpins in metal and tortoiseshell filigree were especially popular.
