A beautiful antique, late Victorian hair comb.

This is a particularly pretty example adorned across the top with glistening foiled back paste stones in white / silver with two garnet red paste accents making a snake design with the red being the eyes.

The paste are set into a cut steel setting and affixed to the top of the comb.

Late Victorian era c1890's.

Good condition overall, some age commensurate wear, no cracks, no missing stones.

Approx 5" width and 4" height
