A beautiful vintage celluloid hair comb in translucent amber color, Art Deco period, the comb has a wide rectangular head and lovely openwork design with solid bands running in-between.
This type of ornament is often known as Spanish or mantilla comb because it resembles a smaller version of the traditional large shell ornaments worn by Spanish ladies with their native dress. In practice any comb which has a high upstanding heading or top which stands proud of the top of the head is often called a mantilla comb. Such combs are worn placed high on the head in order to allow the beauty of their ornamental cresting to be admired.
