Our Collection : Vintage Hair Combs
 

We began collecting antique and colonial hair combs many years ago and are fortunate to have acquired such beautiful pieces including hand cut tortoiseshell combs, ivory combs, and sterling silver combs that are highly collectible today.

The tortoiseshell comb is rare due to the Hawksbill Turtle being endangered. It is now against international law to use tortoiseshell as ornaments in jewelry or combs which makes owning a tortoiseshell comb an even greater treasure. Towards the end of the 19th century hair styles became simpler and the use of these combs decreased only to return again in the Art Deco period. In addition, Celluloid, a manmade plastic, changed the history of combs. With Celluloid, combs could be made with less expense and in mass quantities.

We love the history these combs possess and we love their beauty. We also love that they have been passed down for generations as prized possessions
