Celluloid Combs 2 Tortoise Celluloid Rhinestone France 1940s
Here are 2 vintage hair combs circa 1930's-1940's. They appear to be made of celluloid that intentionally resembled tortoise shell as was the custom during the thirties and forties. Both were purchased from an estate sale.
The largest measures 4.75" long and just shy of 3" along the top. It has cut-out curlycues and leaf patterns with cut-out designs resembling walls of Troy along the top. It is thinner than the other and appears to have been pressed into its shape.
The smaller one is more Art Deco in style with 2 rows of rhinestones across the top edge. It is impress marked: FRANCE. 3-7/8" long x 1-3/4" at the widest.
Both are in very good condition. They appear to have been only lightly used. They have no chips, no cracks, and no missing stones.
