Vintage Engraved Brass Openwork Hair Comb With Horn Teeth
Vintage brass and horn hair comb probably dating from the 1840s to 1860s. This is really superb with the medallions around the edges in the center being slightly oval. One is bent but it only adds to the authenticity of the item. The comb teeth are horn and slightly stiff and the body is engraved brass. The center is a very unusual ribbon design. This is very, very, rare and is quite heavy. It measures about 5 ½” x 5”. It is in excellent condition for its age.
