Fine Silver Hair Comb with Cloisonne Chrysanthemum and Bat
Item number: 2057
This unique traditional Korean halfmoon-shaped comb with loosely arranged teeth is called an Eollaebit and was used for arranging hair before styling. This fine silver comb is elegantly decorated with cloisonne enameled chrysanthemum and bat design. The use of this fine silver comb, instead of modern plastic combs, helps prevent static electricity and keeps the hair and scalp healthy.
The chrysanthemum symbolizing fidelity and loyalty has been one of the most favorite subjects used for adorning craftworks as it blooms until late autumn, thus overcoming the frost. The bat design has been used as a symbol of fortune that brings the happiest life imaginable in Korea and China.
Size: Chrysanthemum: Wide 2.6" x Height 1.1" (6.6 x 2.8cm) Bat: Wide 2.4" x Height 1" (6 x 2.6cm)
