ANTIQUE Pre Civil War 1850's VICTORIAN Gutta-Percha Dark Brown HAIR COMB Jewelry
ANTIQUE Pre Civil War 1850’s VICTORIAN Gutta-Percha Dark Brown HAIR COMB Jewelry Rare early Victorian hair comb, made of gutta-percha, which was an early composition consisting of shellac, sawdust and coloring matter, formed into a mold from heating it. Similar to early bakelite in color and texture, and like bakelite, when rubbed with a cloth til warm, puts off an unusual and bad odor, said similar to burning rubber. It is 3 1/2″ wide and 3 1/4″ high. The hair comb unfortunately has a flaw on the front – looks like it was cut, but does not even go half way through and does not effect the sturdiness of the comb. Overall, it is in good antique condition. The item “ANTIQUE Pre Civil War 1850’s VICTORIAN Gutta-Percha Dark Brown HAIR COMB Jewelry” is in sale since Monday, February 19, 2018.
