1920's Pierced Celluloid Art Deco Haircomb (SOLD)


Designer or Brand: No

Condition: Very Good

Decade: 1920s

Era: Vintage ( 1920s - 1980s)

Type: Hair Comb

Material: Early Plastic - Celluloid

This is a hair comb from the early Art Deco period .  It has  a pierced design with loops in the centre which sort of step up and back down again and curvy design to the top corners - a kind of Art Nouveau meets Art Deco!  It has a good strong colour being a rich mottled brown with an almost golden honey tone - just like the tortoiseshell it is so cleverly imitating!   Made from the early plastic celluloid it is robust and wearable still.    It measures 5.5 inches from the top to the tip of the prongs and is just 3 inches across at the widest point.   The design is very open and pretty which makes this piece just perfect to wear.  It would also be ideal for a collector of hair accessories, early plastic or antique and vintage costume. It would also be nice to wear for Salsa or Flamenco dancing!
