Here is a nice collection of vintage Japanese combs with a good variety of shapes, sizes and materials. They would be nice for the beginning collector of Japanese hair accessories or would form an attractive wall display if mounted.

Top row are two large rectangular combs with curved backs. Both are celluloid with applied gold designs. Middle row left is a moon shaped comb in gold lacquer. On the right a comb in faux tortoiseshell effect celluloid.

Bottom row are two rectangular combs covered in gold lacquer. Took the simple comb and transformed it into an elegant beauty accessory that became a work of art. Japanese kushi (combs) and kanzashi (hairpins) became expressions of a woman's character, social class and marital status. Until the beginning of the modern era, decorative combs and hairpins called kanzashi have been an important part of Japanese fashion.

Generally these ornaments consist of a small semi-circular comb (kushi) a flat stick-like ornament (kogai) and/or elaborate hairpins (kanzashi). There are also elaborate hairpins with dangling ends (hana-kanzashi). The comb is the traditional half-moon or rectangular shape, which is familiar to us from a wealth of Japanese prints.
