Heirloom Horn Combs
+ $ shipping surcharge
Grab the comb by the horn.
The ideal adjectival trifecta for grooming tools (all tools?) is useful-healthful-charming. And boy oh boy, do these combs fit the bill. 1) Useful: These combs are made of horn, so they’re super strong. Their tines won’t bend or break or melt if you leave them out in the sun or use them with a hair dryer. 2) Healthful: Horn is naturally rich in amino acids and keratin, which will help keep your hair nutritionally balanced, silky, and shiny. 3) Charming: These. Shapes. If you’d like a galleon sailing through your locks, the ship comb is for you. The fish comb is double-sided, just like a fish’s bone structure… which this comb clearly recalls. The dresser comb is a classic comb shape, while the round comb is simple and perfect like the moon. And of course there’s the pocket comb, which opens like a switchblade. We’re chuckling, and damn does our hair look good.

Care & Notes -
Wipe clean with warm water and a soft cloth. It is important to avoid leaving your horn items near heat sources or in direct sunlight, as warm temperatures can cause the horn to dry out or change shape.
Due to the nature of natural horn, no two combs are identical. Slight variations in color and pattern of the horn should be expected.
Meet the Maker
Our homes truly come alive when we add the tiny, delightful embellishments—and Siren Song has the details our mantels and tables have been yearning for. Their truly special, hand-carved objects are inspired by Dutch still life paintings of the 16th and 17th centuries and their depiction of everyday items (like fruit, butterflies, and flowers) as symbols of larger themes. Siren Song's treasures are a boon for the collector, who finds delight in the curious and unique.View Full Profile
