Fabulous Boxed Set of 3 19th Century Tortoishell & Paste Hair Combs
This boxed set of combs is just fantastic.
The tortoiseshell and paste combs are in their original blue velvet box and are simply stunning.
The box is a really deep blue velvet and in superb condition, no wear. The inside of the box is lined in cream velvet and the cream silk. The inside of the lid has a gold crown motif, not sure if this indicates it was made for royalty? The box opens and snaps shut well.
There are no pastes missing, and two of the combs are in excellent condition. The middle comb does have a tooth missing, but in no way really detracts from what is a terrific item. I could be restored.
Box measures 14 x 14 x4 cm
1 comb is 11 cm wide 2 combs are 9 cm wide.
