Antique Cut Steel Butterfly Hair Comb


In the later decades of the Victorian era two-pronged tortoiseshell hair pins were favored. The heads of hair pins and combs were as fanciful as were the brooches of the time. Hummingbirds, peacocks, and of course, butterflies took flight as the popular motif in jewelry for the hair. Hinged to allow for multiple positioning, cut steel is the medium chosen for the winged design. A steel base secures the head to the pin.

Measures 4-1/2 inches (11.6 cm) in total length; the butterfly is 2-1/4 inches (5.7 cm) in width by 1-13/16 inches (4.7 cm) in length. In very good to excellent condition; very small amount of expected surface patina yet still shimmering and very bright. Dates to circa 1870 - 1880 and is possibly English in origin.
