Art Deco combs are among my favorite treasures to collect, and this is my personal favorite in my stash. This elaborate accessory is made of apple juice celluloid and paste rhinestones, with coordinating painted detailing.
Before I began collecting these combs, I have no idea that there were so many different types of celluloid, all with different names. This comb features apple juice celluloid, name for its translucent yellow color. Also to be found are amber celluloid, faux tortoise celluloid, marble celluloid, ivoroid, and many more. I like to collect it because it is beautiful, but also because it is a cruelty-free material.
I look forward to sharing more of my combs in future uploads. Thank you for stopping by, and enjoy!
