Edwardian to 1920's Celluloid Haircomb set with Diamante (SOLD)


Designer or Brand: No

Condition: Very Good

Decade:  1910 -1920s

Era: Transitional - Antique to Vintage

Type: Hair Comb

Material: Early Plastic - Celluloid with Paste (Glass)

Here is a most wearable haircomb.  Made of celluloid, an early plastic invented by the Victorians and used to simulate Tortoiseshell and horn, this comb has the added advantage of diamante studding.  A simple and classic pattern of a diamond shape within a border has been picked out using 50 individual faceted glass stones which are set into the material.  The comb is a pleasing conker brown colour and is in excellent antique order; robust enough to use.  This vintage hair accessory measures just over 4 and a half inches long by 2 inches across at its widest point.  It is a two pronged comb in the Japanese style.  Date wise it could be Edwardian or maybe even into the 1920's Art Deco era.  A good addition to a vintage hairslide and comb collection, lovely for those who enjoy early and bakelite era plastic antiques and collectables or just very nice to style your hair now!
