Antique Hmong Silver Comb

The Hmong, an indigenous hilltribe group from Laos, Thailand and China, are great silversmiths and physical adornment with silver is important for women of all ages. This comb is formed from silver repoussé over wood and is about 40-60 years old, showing age and patina reflective of its years. This type of hair adornment would be worn for special occasions and ceremonies and is rarely seen anymore.

Measurements: 5 1/2" (14 cm)
