Romans took great pride in their appearance, and this lovely comb is a piece that could have been in their personal effects. This comb is hand carved from bone and is decorated not only with the heads of birds (possibly gulls) but with Latin, too. It seems to have come from the area of the Iberian Peninsula during the time of the seventh Emperor of Rome, Augustus.
Bone is a natural product and no two finishes will look alike. Color and finish will vary slightly.
