True Presence


We recently discovered a small collection of antique and vintage combs from Japan, each showing the most wonderful painted decoration across its lacquered surface, and some with tiny inlaid shell, gold, or silver elements. The detail and beauty of each comb is at once serene and stunning, the reverse as lovely as the front. (Honestly, we could gaze at these for hours and continue to find details to adore.) Needless to say, we fell in love and immediately determined that the combs would make marvelous pendants, and here we are.

This particular comb shows gold, coral, and olive green decoration on a blush-beige ground, with delicate accents of shimmering gold and tiny bits of abalone inlaid among leaves and flowers. (Truly, breathtaking!) Paired with hand-wrought brass beads from Africa (hollow, so enjoyably wearable) the necklace measures an adjustable 21.5 to 22.5" in length with a gilt copper toggle clasp at back. (Comb measures approximately 4" x 2")
