Edwardian Paste Set Bird Hair Comb


This is an elaborate paste set hair comb. Made of early plastic that resembles tortoise shell, it is hand carved and mounted with a gilt metal bird. The out stretched wings of the bird are encrusted with over 150 hand cut clear paste stones. They are all prong set, the eye is a red bead and adds a lovely pop of color.

The early plastic is in amazing condition and remains flexible and is still very functional as a hair comb.  Just waiting for your long tresses. Measures 3.5 by just over 4.5 inches.

Circa 1910
