How many of you have a comb? I do not own a comb. I have used a hair brush for years. Far Guy has no hair but he has a comb, in the spring and summer he carries it in his back pocket so that he can comb through Chances hair and remove ticks before they have a chance to attach themselves to the dog.
Far Guy’s Dad used to have a comb in his pocket. For the comb over..you know..he was one of those balding guys that tried to hang onto every hair on his head. So he grew his hair longer on one side and combed it over..he looked funny in the wind. He usually wore a cap of some kind outdoors.
This is a comb case from the museum. It is the pioneer cabin..it should probably be in the heritage room. It is one item that people comment on. “ I have not seen one of those before.” “I didn’t know there was such a thing as a comb case.”
It is made from tin. I think this was painted by someone who might not be an artist.
It may have been in a Barber Shop and it may have held regular combs ..or it may have been in a dressing room of a fancy lady during the late 1800’s or early 1900’s. It may have held pretty combs..for holding your long locks in an updo:)
