Tortoise Shell

Hi Dear Folk,

This was rather an amazing collection of tortoise shell; which of course is illegal now, but I was standing next to a lady who said she bought a lovely mirror, brush and comb set in Mexico, so it must be allowed down there, although wouldn't it be illegal to bring it into the county? I don't know.

I do have an old set from my grandma, just mirror and brush.  I know you can buy hair combs on the internet but they are usually made out of water buffalo horns.

Look at all those hair pins and inlay work.

These mantilla combs are lovely.
