A very beautiful Spanish mantilla style hair comb in faux tortoiseshell effect, made of celluoid. Very large in scale, beautifully detailed. This comb has been carved out of one large piece of attractive natural material which has a distinctive mottled pattern. It has five long tines and a high heading with a deeply curved profile. The dark brown splodges which are characteristic of this beautiful material are well distributed across the lighter translucent ground of pale yellowish orange brown.
