I wish I was a rich girl #3

When I was a kid, hair combs were brightly coloured pieces of plastic. Not very pretty at all. It took me a while to realize that many of those pretty hair ornaments that you see in old movies and pictures are actually combs and forks. Here is a collection of Art Deco and 1940’s combs for your pleasure.

1940’s celluloid tortoise comb. I really like the shape!

Art Deco rhinestone comb

Hinged rhinestone comb

Red celluloid bow combs

Faux mother of pearls and rhinestone comb

Mexican comb with silver grapes, 1940’s

Comb with gold inlay and faux pearls

Japanese Art Deco comb

Faux tortoise shell comb with rhinestones

Aluminium, paste and celluloid comb

1930’s peach comb with metal ornament

1940’s pearl topped picks

Rhinestone hair fork

Two really pretty Art Deco combs

If you don’t have hair enough, but still want to use a pretty two pronged comb, then I think this is a perfect idea; use it as a hat decoration!

I love combs and own some vintage ones. But I never worn them because I cannot do a nice hairstyle with them... they always fall down in the middle of the day when I don't have a mirror to fix my hair.... What a pity, they are so cute!
