Story

Decoration of and accessories for the coif have been with us since the beginnings of recorded history. Whether a simple feather or a streak of color applied oh so perfectly, enhancement of the hair continues through to this very day.

Beautifully crafted of horn, this circa 1890 – 1910 hair comb displays the free-flowing curvaceous lines of form and sensuality of material associated with the Art Nouveau movement. Honey colored horn has been formed into two tapering prongs underlined with a gentle arch and surmounted with 15k yellow gold repoussé hollow work of scrolls and whiplash designs. Luscious pearls, including one large elongated baroque pearl accent the decorative piece with a modified asymmetrical formality not always unexpected from a jewel of this time frame. Perfect for wear or for display.
