This large Mantilla comb is just beautiful. It is ivory in color and has a mother of pearl look to it. It a curved comb to fit around the back of your head. It is covered with beautiful carved look lattice work and scrolls with flowers. These were worn to hold mantilla veils into place or at the back of your hair above a bun for a party or special event.
This comb measures 8.5 across and rises just under 2.5 inches above the comb teeth.
This has never been worn and has been in a warehouse for years waiting to be discovered. I am not totally sure of the age of this piece, but I do believe it is very old.
