This double-sided, double comb is from Central Asia, most probably from the Uzbek people. It comprises a wooden double headed comb in a silver casing decorated with gilding, applied silver bosses and inset with small turquoise cabochons.
The interplay between the gold and the silver is particularly pleasing.
Most probably such a comb would have been worn on festive occasions and would have been part of a marriage dowry.
The comb is in excellent condition and is without losses.
