This is a fabulous hair comb made of Celluloid, which was used to  create inexpensive jewellery, hair accessories and many other items, which would previously have been made from ivory, horn or other expensive animal products.  It’s main disadvantage was that the material was/is fragile, as a result pieces made from Celluloid are highly collectible and increasingly rare. The top of the comb has a gorgeous organic swirl which has bee decorated with etched lines, clear paste stones and tiny silver metal balls.  Measures 15.5x5.3cm
