Comb made of flexible wood which is split vertically near the end to form the eleven prongs which are held apart by the binding. The handle is rectangular in shape which tapers into a thin strip of wood, curves upwards to end in a point. The other end of the rectangle flares out into the prongs of the comb. Where the handle and prongs meet is a band of braided string wrapped around the handle.


From the collection of Sister Twyford or Miss J. Pearce (Australia), who had served as missionaries in the Trobriand Islands in the 1920s and Dobu Island in the 1930s.
