Art Deco 14kt Jade + Carved Tortoise Shell Hair Comb Set
A gorgeous pair of hair combs from the Art Deco (ca1920s) era! These feminine combs are hand carved from tortoise shell and feature decorative 14kt gold and jade accented tops. The ornate gold toppers are detailed with a feminine floral motif, their delicate flourishes gracefully swirling across the front and beautifully reflecting the light. Three round jade cabochons are bezel set atop the combs, each resting in an open back setting and exhibiting an array of deep and soft green hues marbled with creamy white. The tortoise shell has a lovely deep brown color with golden and caramel accents, a wonderful contrast to the gold and green tops. The underside of each gold top has a "o14Ko" gold purity and maker's mark. The combs could be worn during the day or at night, either occasion would make a statement! It would make a very unique addition to any collection!
Measurements: Both combs measure approximately 4" long and graduate from 1/2" to 1" across. The gold top measures 5/8" tall and 1 1/4" at its widest point. The jade cabochons are each about 3/8" in diameter.
Condition: The overall condition of the comb set is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the carved tortoise shell or the gold setting, and all six of the jade stones are intact.
