Vintage Mustache (moustache) Comb In Sterling Silver By Reed & Barton-nib:
ITEM: Vintage Sterling Silver Mustache Comb by Reed & Barton—New in Box
Very fine VINTAGE Mustache (Moustache) comb made of Sterling Silver, by Reed & Barton, unused, still NEW in ORIGINAL BOX and packaging. This Mustache Comb is a great accessory for anyone who has a moustache; from slim to handlebars! It can be useful for those with short-hair beards, long sideburns, dramatic eyebrows… and more!
One of the MUST-HAVE’s of a Gentleman’s grooming kit!
FATHER’S DAY IS COMING SOON!
For men with Moustaches and fine facial hair, this would be an EXCELLENT GIFT!
High-definition pictures were taken of the comb in and with the original packaging, by itself, and a final one of just the exterior of the box. It is a nice Silver color with no tarnish, though would probably shine better if polished. The box exterior is blue and white; the interior blue. Any color discrepancies from the lighting (a combination of fluorescent and natural) are incidental.
Just over 2 ½ Inches long (6.5 cm) and ½ Inch wide (1 cm)
One side has the words “R&B Sterling” engraved on the comb.
DAMAGE: NONE. Box somewhat yellowed from age.
Originally received as a gift in approximately 1978, this Sterling Silver Mustache (Moustache) Comb is now at least 35 years old—and as nice and new as it was originally. NEVER USED. The box has some slight yellowing from age, and any ‘marks’ that might be seen on the silver are actually from the plastic bag it comes in, which is why I took a picture of the Moustache Comb out of the plastic. Probably the first time it’s actually been handled in 35+ years. I searched for it online, but could not find another like it that was not already sold.
Reed & Barton are famous for their silver work since 1824, and many of their antique and vintage items are now extremely valuable collector’s items! This particular one was purchased at Neiman Marcus around 1978 (or earlier). I searched the Reed & Barton site, but it is NO LONGER MADE! (The closest was the ‘Bristol Boys Brush & Comb Set’ for $175, but not even close to the same thing.) Neither is it sold in stores—only possibly in special vintage/antique shops.
SO—For a GIFT, forget the cheap plastic ones and go for STERLING SILVER!

I am not a large retail seller; I sell a few things occasionally, many of them heirlooms or collectibles with personal or sentimental value. Other items are sold because they must be. I go to great lengths to accurately describe each and every item. Everything is researched, weighed, and measured, then displayed with very high resolution pictures.
