Vintage Hungarian flax comb

This is a very beautiful accessory which was originally used to tease out the tangles in the wool or separate the fibers from the flax plant in order to spin them into linen thread.

Wooden flax combs tend to be rarer than metal ones – wooden combs were found largely in remote rural villages as the farmers had limited access to metal.

A very sculptural and organic object with a beautiful natural patina that would look stunning displayed on a shelf or hung on a wall.
