This exquisite set of antique loop hair combs date from the early part of the Twentieth Century 1905-1920 and although the origin is unknown, they are likely to be French as France was notably adept in the manufacture of early celluloid and paste accessories during this era. Each comb is comprised of early plastic with a faux tortoiseshell effect in rich amber tones with a jewelled crescent of diamanté crystals set into the nouveau style loop at the top. The combs secure with 2 x gently curved Japanese style prongs to enable the hair to stay in place. In excellent vintage condition, these beautiful pieces would look perfect worn in an up-do or as side combs and are still pleasingly contemporary.
