Auguste Bonaz Hair Comb - Faux Tortoise Regency Style

Here is a classical Regency style hair comb from France.  This fabulous comb is from top designer Auguste Bonaz, famous for his Art Deco early plastic and bakelite jewellery and most sought after hair combs and hair accessories.  There is an engraved 'Auguste Bonaz' signature on one of the prongs.  This comb appears to be of early plastic possibly celluloid or galilith but has the look of natural tortoiseshell. It is warm honey and brown with the mix of tones making a very effective faux tortoiseshell. Gently curving the body of the comb is smooth with 9 individual teeth or tines and a thick top with a near thin gilded edge. It dates from around the 1930s but is in the Georgian  revival style.  It has the look of the Regency combs which were worn in the late 18th and early 19th Century which were enjoyed again in the Art Deco 1920s and 1930s era.  This is a medium sized hair comb, measuring approximately 5 inches across and 3 inches down, with each tine or prong  graduating being two in the centre down to one and half inches at the ends.  The comb is relatively light because of the nature of early plastics.  This Regency style hair comb is in very good condition, is robust enough to wear and would look amazing in the right hairstyle!  It would also be a super addition to a collection of early plastic and bakelite era jewelry and accessories or would appeal to anyone who collects the work of Auguste Bonaz.
