Explore Comb Hairpin, Hairpin Hair and more!

early 1900s Hairpin/ Hair Fork/ Hair Comb. Made of tortoiseshell. Length 4 3/4 inches. Several of these properly placed could keep masses of hair up where it belonged. I use a set of reproduction ones and they work great on my long locks better than tons of modern bobby pins. http://www.metmuseum.org/Collections/search-the-collections/80050746?rpp=20=1=on=*=Hairpins=10#
