Edwardian to 1920's Faux Tortoiseshell with Diamante Comb (SOLD)

 

JEWELLERY DETAILS

Designer or Brand: No

Condition: Very Good

Decade:  Edwardian to 1920s

Era: Transitional - Antique to Vintage

Type: Hair Comb

Material: Early Plastic - Celluloid

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 haircomb in a mottled brown and honey colour with a row of tiny diamante or paste gems twinkling along the top. This is good antique order but some of the teeny little 'diamonds' have dulled a little - a sign of their age- but it is still beautiful!  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!
