I always think about weddings and discerning brides when I come upon sets of gorgeous Mexican silver repousse hair combs – don’t ask me why, it is just one of those things! So just imagine this pair, with its hand-wrought silver scrolls and amethyst cabs complementing your hairdo – no need to commit for life actually; they are equally enjoyable in full, unattached freedom…
Size/Weight: 1 3/4″ tall by equally wide; silver wave is 1 3/4″ long by 1/2″ at its widest; 11.0 grams (for the set)
Hallmarks / Date: “MEXICO SILVER” and another mark that is not clear enough; I believe it’s a maker’s logo and not an Eagle so I will date the set in the pre-1948 period
Condition: excellent vintage with fantastic patina in the repousse silver, beautiful, deeply colored amethyst cabs securely set in their bezels, with the lucite combs in great shape as well; no damage and no repairs noted
SOLD – Thank you!
