The Worshipful Company of Horners

OUR HORN COMBS at MODIP

Prior to Covid, the Horners purchased a collection of antique Horn Combs; many are quite intricate and were once very fashionable. Here are pictures of a few of them displayed in the boxes as shown to us prior to purchase. 139 of these combs have now been added to our collection of horn kept at the Museum of Design in Plastics (MoDiP) which is part of the Bournemouth Arts University. The curator and her team have now photographed and catalogued the collection and have posted a report on their web site which can be viewed at www.museumofdesigninplastic.blogspot.com/2021/01/horn-combs.html.
