    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.

      Thank you Eileen!
      Yes, turn the clock back ;-))
      What amazes me the most in this piece is the design and above all so many TINY pastes being set and not glued in it!
