Ox Horn Crafted Comb of the Consort of Imperial Prince Yeong Ox Horn Crafted Comb of the Consort of Imperial Prince Yeong

Early 20th century

This comb was used to pull back hair tightly so braiding could be done neatly. Similar to an eollebit, or wide-toothed comb, in material and shape, this is smaller in size and more fine-toothed than an eollebit. The ox horn pieces with floral pattern are attached on the semi-circle frame of the comb, and the end and both sides of the comb are lacquered in black.
