Rectangular comb made of several small, thin pieces of wood, each tapered to a point at one end, lashed together with thin strips of light to dark brown grass (?) between two metal pieces. One of the end metal pieces has a loop bent into it at the midpoint, while the other is flat. The strips of material that hold the tines of the comb together are woven in a raised chevron pattern down the centre of the comb, and in a diamond pattern from the centre raised design to the top edge of the wooden pieces on the side opposite the tapered points. The raised centre pattern is the same on both front and back surfaces of the comb, while the diamond pattern appears in the negative and positive on either side. On the side opposite the hook there is a small thread which is wrapped around the end of the comb. The flat ends of the tines are blackened with a burnt appearance.
