For Your Consideration


A Very Large Antique Victorian Spanish Faux Tortoiseshell (Genuine Schildpatt) Mantilla (Peineta) Hair Comb dated to between 1860-1890

Description

This lovely large mantilla hair comb is made of carved/cut genuine Schildpatt ("faux tortoiseshell"). The top of the comb is crown shaped. The colour is very beautiful. The last photos show how it was/ought to be worn (The shawl is not for sale). The custom of wearing mantilla combs was very much supported by the Empress Eugenie.
The comb measures 8.5" (21.5 cm) high and just under 5" (13 cm) wide.
The comb is in excellent condition - no chips, no cracks (see photos).
