Chinese Ethnic Minority large hand-carved wooden comb
Please refer to our stock # M119 when inquiring.
This Chinese ethnic minority hair comb was hand carved with scalloped edge detail on both sides. Many ethnic minority women would save the hair from ancestors and add it to their own hair for additional bulk...some groups would add bits of wool also to make the hair appear thicker. Combs were used both for combing and for hair ornaments.
Carved from walnut wood and 9 inches long at the bottom
