Combs, Combs, Combs: Part 15

No, we haven't posted about hair 15 times, but we do have lot of Ladies Victorian and Edwardian Hair Combs here. It's a large collection, and we are taking our time bringing them forth. These four are recent additions to Past Perfect Vintage.

Hair jewelry and decor morphs through innovative and yet repetitive phases. After all, there are only so many ways of attaching something to the head: combs, bandeaus, hair bands, tiaras, barrettes and hair pins. Just in the last 2 years hair bands (Edwardian era, 40s, 50s and 60s) return, bandeaus (20s, 60s), tiaras (Edwardian, 50s ) have all make appearances.

Todays combs are usually plastic and small. Maybe a floral gewgaw or a bit of metal is all they have. Take a look at these Edwardian and Victorian combs to see exuberance combined with skill!
