  1. Hi, I realise this post is not recent; however, I am wanting to enquire as to whether you still have this piece and whether or not it is for sale? If not – would you be able to help me find a seller of lalique hair-combs?
    Thank you in advance for your help.

    1. Hi Fiona, Thanks for writing in. I have gotten into so much trouble on Pintrest because people have read what I wrote, “This elegant painted horn comb touches those who have Lalique hearts,” as being an identification of this comb as Lalique, there is no way I will ever be able to correct the misinterpretation.

      This is not a Lalique comb. It is an unsigned clarified horn Art Nouveau comb. Lalique combs made by his workshop went for $38,000 at Sotheby’s a few years ago. Combs made by his own hand went for around $300,000. So sadly, none of us are going to get a Lalique comb unless some dealer redefines stupidity. And this does happen. The Creative Museum does not sell their combs. But here is one:
