Another object from our collection.
This is a decorative hair comb from a collection donated to us by Ruth Coste. It belonged to her grandmother. Ruth’s brother was Frank Wyatt, who worked at Tilgate Park.
What would you write on a label for this one?
Here are some suggestions from people on our social media pages:
“Beautiful old ornate Tortoise Shell hair comb.”
“Beautiful hair comb, maybe tortoise shell “
“Hair comb it’s survived intact.”
“Perfect for my updo ”
“Secret weapon women used to hide in their hair”
“Was it once part of a magnificent animal?”
