Fred Partridge, haircomb, 1901-6

The comb is made of horn. Fred Partridge has very effectively added blue, enamelled copper decoration and cabochon-cut moonstones to make a piece that looks particularly naturalistic. The technique of enamelling last fashionable in the 18th century was revived by Arts and Crafts designers.
