A stunning Art Nouveau Hair Comb.
A truly beautiful vintage item. Lots of tiny paste stones that sparkle in the light are set within an intricate black Art Nouveau design.? A stunning head piece to set off any dress or hairstyle.? The comb is vintage but, without testing what kind of plastic has been used to make the comb, it is difficult to determine when it was made.? However, I think you’ll agree it is a thing of beauty whenever and whoever made this vintage comb.
Approx measurements: Width 7 inches; Height 5.5 inches
Condition report: all stones appear to be intact.? The plastic is sturdy and strong and the 5 prongs of the comb are strong with the right amount of flexibility.? Looking at the tips, the “line” of the comb is ever so slightly uneven but that’s simply because this is a comb which has been worn (as you might expect from a vintage piece).? However, this shouldn’t affect wearing the comb, today.? This comb was once owned by a Costumier who hired items to film and television production companies. To assist with identification, the owner added a tiny label with a serial number (which was removed) and 3 spots of green – possibly, painted on!? I have not attempted to remove these, though you may prefer to do so.? However, I doubt that these “dots” of colour would be seen, once the comb is in your hair.? I am including a photograph so that you can decide for yourself whether or not these dots or spots of green detract from the stunning look of this comb.
Perfect for a grand ball, a wedding, a formal night on the Queen Mary 2 or a wonderful evening at the gorgeous Art Deco hotel on Burgh Island!! The choice is yours!
