Large French Ivory Lacy Spanish Comb

Ref: DE-0903-012

For an example of this same design in black see DE-0903-006. This very large black Spanish style hair comb is made in one of the most popular and iconic Art Deco styles. It has a radiating design of spoke like lines, in between which are placed panels of lace like openwork.

This is a very typical motif in Art Deco combs, and in the art of the period. Some people interpret the spokes as representing the wheel, and thus symbolising the Futurist fascination with speed and machinery.

This is a very large comb and similar to that which appears in the final illustration, from a coloured illustration in the French EROS magazine.

Size: 8 x 7 ins ( approx 20 x 18 cms)

Jade Green Geometric Pattern Comb

Ref: DE-0903-014

Celluloid was a material which lent itself to a variety of decorating techniques, and many different varieties were employed to embellish the fashionable hair accessories of the Art Deco period.

One of the most important was its ability to simulate natural materials such as tortoiseshell, amber, or, as here, jade. The strong contrasting shapes within the heading show a deep appreciation and understanding of the potential of the material.  

This very beautiful comb has random mottling to simulate the appearance of oriental jade and is made in yet another variation of the iconic sunray design.

Size: 8¼ x 7½ ins (approx 21 x 19 cms)
