A LOT OF TWO NEO BAROQUE GILT METAL HAIR COMBS, circa 1950s

This sale is for a pair of pretty side combs in the neo Baroque style of the mid 20th century.

Both of these combs are made in a similar way and both are in excellent condition. An elaborate metal heading is fitted onto a comb mount with split prongs.

#1 has a dark comb mount and measures 2 x 2¾ (5 x 6 cms). It has an elaborate openwork filigree design with a pretty rose placed in the centre.

#2 has an amber coloured comb mount and measures 2 x 2¼ ins (5 x 6 cms). It has a heading design of three pierced disks with a scroll pattern.

FURTHER INFORMATION:

The elaborate ornamentations found on these hair accessories are made in a style which we call neo Baroque. The Baroque was originally an important art movement of the late 16th and early 17th centuries, and was characterised by rich and elaborate decoration, heavy scrollwork, and a great deal of opulent gilding.

Neo-baroque is a design language made for luxury. It includes elements such as voluptuous patterns, floral ornaments and embellishments in all shapes and sizes. In jewellery and personal ornaments we find strong lines and visual contrasts. These are often are heavily embellished with large gemstones, pearls and rhinestones.
