Years ago, I had long hair and collected antique hair pins and combs.

I had recently the luck to come across this one, with an amazing Art Deco stylised fishes decor.

Price was the same as I'd get it 20 years ago :-)

Real blonde turtle shell, in pristine condition, few pastes missing, but not noticeable!

10cm or 4" square.

Maker's mark :
C/clover/B, 3 five pointed stars under.

French boar's head hallmark.
