French 19th Century gilt metal and celluloid hair comb, with faux pearls.


This is a really bold and unusual hair ornament. The pearls look like they are buttons on a shirt cuff, with gilt rope button holes. To add extra flourish, the maker has added three snake chains, suspending a larger blown glass pearl on a pendant.
