Unique and original hair accessory.
Luxurious Japanese design. Impressive, elegant and classic.
High class and wonderfully ornamented Kanzashi style hair comb with traditional lacquered Maki-e design floral pattern.
This beautiful vintage style Japanese hair comb is the type called "Kanzashi." This is a kind of umbrella term used for a number of different types of hair accessory.
Such ornaments represent a link with traditional forms in Japanese hair accessories, which have been used for hundreds of years before Western styles began to overtake traditional forms.
The styling of this striking comb is typical of Japanese design. The comb is made in glossy black resin. The heading is hand decorated with lacquered design done in gold and red with lovely picture of golden butterflies.
The back of the comb is decorated with picture of bamboo plant, which in Japan is a symbol of strength and flexibility. The delicate bamboo plant bends beneath the weight of winter snow but does not break.
The final two pictures illustrate typical Japanese hair accessories of a similar kind and show how they are worn in a contemporary coiffure.
Material: Acrylic resin.
Size (Cm): Length: 13-14; Width: 6 - 8
Please note: Details and colors of the images might be slightly different from the actual product. As it is hand made, small imperfections are common in the lacquer work on kanzashi in this quality range.
Absolutely lovely item - it would make a unique gift.
