- Item Description
We have here another wonderful find in this Magnificent Tiara Style Very Large Antique Hair Comb.
It has an impressive height of about 3 3/4 inches - measured at the center and about 4 inches - measured at each side. It has a width of about 5 1/2 inches.
This Exquisite Comb features 18 Karat Gold Inlay - as noted in one of the photographs which we have presented here - which forms the exquisitely delicate outline for the lovely flower and leaf Design. Set into the cavities provided for them are Rhinestones. Unfortunately, many of them are missing as they were not set with prongs. In addition, we see Two lovely Emerald Green Stones punctuating the design however there most likely originally were more - but - alas - they too have not survived these many years.
This beautiful 18 Karat Gold Inlay Design was set into what we believe to be - probably some type of high quality man-made plastic and boasts rich warm honey and brown tones displayed within its surface.
As can be seen in the photographs which we have provided for your inspection, several of the comb's prongs are broken off near the lower edge. In addition, the rounded right upper edge is completely broken off and there are two cracks near the upper edge just to the left of that area.
Other than that, it is in fairly nice Antique condition and does exhibit some surface wear. That being said, even with the aforementioned condition issues, this is still quite a find!
Just give it a gentle cleaning - and - Enjoy!
This lovely Antique Hair Comb is quite the treasure and should be a fantastic addition to your collection. It can only continue increasing in value as more and more time goes by bringing you many compliments and a great source of pleasure.
