When we sourced this antique Belgian flax comb, we were struck by its sculptural nature and the decorative elements applied to a utilitarian item. The back of the comb is solid wood and the comb is made of iron. There are iron details as well as some attempts to reinforce the piece where splits in the wood occurred, but these repairs are obviously quite old. The piece can be hung on the wall via the iron ring at one end.
Measures 9.75"W x 39"L x 7"D. Patination, rust, surface wear present. This piece was a tool that was likely used frequently at one time and the wear to the piece is both beautiful and speaks to the age of the piece.
