1920's/1930's Art Deco Faux Tortoiseshell and Faux Pearl Hair Slide (SOLD)

JEWELLERY DETAILS

Designer or Brand: No

Condition: Very Good

Decade: 1920s - 1930s

Era: Vintage ( 1920s - 1980s)

Type: Hair Slide

Material: Early Plastic - Celluloid

This is a most unusual and very stylish hair slide or barrette. I have never seen another quite like it!  It is made of celluloid to imitate tortoishell and has inlaid triangular panels which imitate mother-of-pearl shell.  The pleasing contrast between the warm honey browns and the creamy pearls really make this one special.  The design screams Art Deco and is certainly from the 1920's to 1930's era.  It has a curved rectangular shape and measures approx 4cm by 3cms.  The little hair pin fastener on the back is made of brass with a brass ball closure and it sits across the width of the slide rather than the length.  This would be lovely to wear for everyday or for evening or would make a wonderful addition to a collection of vintage hair accessories or early plastic bakelite era jewellery.
