This sale is for a good and heavy quality metal Spanish style comb with enamelled embellishment.

CONDITION: old new stock

SIZE: 6½ x 5½ ins h (16.5 x 14 cms)

DESCRIPTION:

This is a good quality traditional Spanish mantilla style comb made from heavy goldtone colour metal. The comb has a design of three overlapping openwork circles whose borders are embellished with black enamelling.

This manner of wearing this type of decorative comb is shown in the accompanying photograph in picture 5.

FURTHER INFORMATION:

This comb is of the type known as a Spanish or mantilla comb because it resembles the traditional ornaments worn by Spanish ladies with their native dress. In this tradition a beautiful lace scarf is draped over a high comb which was made of beautifully carved tortoiseshell. The use of the very tall Spanish comb has a very long history of use throughout the 19th century and has never been out of fashion in Spain. Nowadays they are an essential part of the costume used in flamenco and other forms of Spanish dance.
