Here we have an antique Downton Abbey style Edwardian hair comb dating dates from the circa 1910 -1920 . It has a late Art Nouveau element in the simple curved floral organic design.The celluloid faux tortoishell is decorated with what appear to be all the original rhinestones and minute metal studs. I cannot see any rhinestones that have been replaced or have darkened. The minute metal studs which would once have been much brighter have darkened with age which is typical of the type of material.
The faux tortoiseshell tends towards a yellow shade with toffee coloured streaks.The comb is an assymetric shape and slightly curved; enabling it to be worn standing up proud of the hair to show off the floral design

It measures 4-1/2ins (11cm) long overall and averages about 1/16th ins thickness.The prongs of the comb are 2-1/2ins long (6.5cm) Measuring diagonally across the flower part from the base to the outer rim it measures 2-5/8ins (6.5cm)..

It is in very good condition for it's age.Just perfect for an updo hairstyle for a formal occasion or dressing up Downton Abbey style or simply add it to your collection of hair accessories

It comes from a non smoking pet free environment. It will be carefully packed in a suitable, possibly recyled box.Please take a minute check my terms and conditions before purchase especially regarding delivery to a PO address and your right to cancel.
