1910s Best Hold Art Nouveau Paste & Celluloid Faux Tortoiseshell Hair Comb
Like something plucked straight out of an Alphonse Mucha painting, this stunning and rare Art Nouveau hair comb is a beauty to behold!
Fashioned in a faux tortoiseshell celluloid, this lovely hair accoutrement is accented with dozens of dazzling paste rhinestones in shades of clear and emerald green. All rhinestones are present and sparkle.
From afar, this piece looks almost as if it has some Egyptian Revival qualities, particularly the way the ends form a somewhat diamond snake head. However, upon closer inspection, you can see the beautiful Art Nouveau flowers and lovely pre-Deco line work on each tip.
