Sterling Silver Hair Comb Sculpture by Art Smith

About

This silver hair pin also happens to be a beautiful abstract sculpture which hints at being a female figure. When not in use atop your head, it can be displayed on its bespoke plinth made of solid Makassar ebony (possibly the rarest, most luxurious species of wood in the world). Art Smith, the great Modernist jewelry maker, also made this design in brass. This example, in sterling silver, is in excellent condition and bears the stamped script signature of the artist. Off of its plinth, this piece measures 6 inches tall by 2 inches wide. As displayed on the plinth, the overall measurements are 9.25 inches tall by 2.4 inches wide.
