Jugenstil is the name of the German period of art and design that coincided with, and was influenced by, Art Nouveau and the Arts and Crafts movement in Britain. Jugenstil bridged the last decade of the 19th century through to the outbreak of the first world war. As with most all art movements of length, there were variations in the designs produced over time and by location.

The comb is made in horn with a coin silver plaque set with natural blue zircon and a mother of pearl cabochon.
