CREAM & BLACK CELLULOID HAIR COMB
On a recent buying trip I was lucky enough to be able to buy several vintage hair combs. This one looks Art Nouveau - with its leave and flowers. It is made of cream coloured celluloid ( a plastic - popular from circa 1880 - 1930 - so it predates bakelite). Celluloid moves a little - which bakelite does not. It has flowing leaves/flowers that are coloured black. I always have a selection of celluloid hair combs amongst my vintage costume jewellery and accessories at Vintage Modes, @Grays Antiques, in central London. Ref: 2086 B98/26 Price £85. See me on Facebook and Twitter - Gillian Horsup Vintage Jewellery. On Facebook I try to blog regularly about vintage costume jewellery and accessories.
