• Siberian ivory comb
  • Europe
  • Russia
  • Width : 6 1/2 inch
  • Height : 3 1/8 inch
  • Depth : 1/8 inch
  • Fragment of an H comb, of mammoth ivory. One side with larger teeth, probably too much dammaged, were cut. In the middle is carved the name of the Iakoutsk city, in Siberia. On the the reverse, we can read on an old sticker: " Comb belonging to Catherine the Great of Russia, Empress. 1684 to 1727". This assertion would need checking.
