  • Argentina
  • Width : 12 inch
  • Height : 12 inch

  • Magnificent huge comb, like the ones worn in the 1820-1830' during the Masculino fashion (peineton). The tortoiseshell is molded, cut and nicely inlaid with gold wire. Exactly the same example can be seen in the Museo de Arte Hispanoamericano Isaac Fernadez Blanco in Buenos Aires. It also features in the Eduardo Kieffer book, page 54.
