Bone Double-Sided One-Piece Dressing Comb Fragments

(18th Century)

Four fragments from a bone double-sided dressing comb. Two of the fragments are broken and mend, and the remaining two fragments are likely from the same comb but do not mend. This comb may also be made of ivory instead of bone. Lines on the exterior surface are reminiscent of Schreger lines present in elephant tusks.
