Faux tortoiseshell hair comb for large French doll

CONDITION: good vintage condition with expected wear for age

SIZE: 3½ ins h x 1½ ins w (9 x 4 cm) decorative part 1½ ins h (4 cm)

APPROXIMATE DATE: 1890-1900s

MATERIALS: celluloid faux tortoiseshell

DESCRIPTION:

Here is a pretty little comb which would probably suit a large French doll.

It is made just like a full sized comb in celluloid faux tortoiseshell with a curved heading having an openwork design.

This type of ornament is often known as Spanish or mantilla comb because it resembles a smaller version of the traditional large shell ornaments worn by Spanish ladies with their native dress. In practice any comb which has a high upstanding heading or top which stands proud of the top of the head is often called a mantilla comb. Such combs are worn placed high on the head in order to allow the beauty of their ornamental cresting to be admired.
