MATERIALS: celluloid

DESCRIPTION:

Here is a very beautiful Spanish style hair comb made in blonde celluloid. It has a wide rectangular heading with a hand painted top border featuring a floral 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.
