  • It is the oldest known comb—a small four-toothed number carved from animal bone some eight thousand years ago.
    Combs have been made from bone, tortoiseshell, ivory, rubber, iron, tin, gold, silver, lead, reeds, wood, glass, porcelain, paper-mâché.
  • Combs were among the first and most popular objects made of celluloid.
  • By 1867 elephants, were in grave danger of being “numbered with extinct species” because of humans’ insatiable demand for the ivory in their tusks. Ivory, at the time, was used for all manner of things, from button hooks to boxes, piano keys to combs.
  • By the turn of the 20th century, hair brushes and combs made of celluloid, ebonite, galalith, and metal were becoming more common, even as more and more people were washing their hair with shampoo. Alfred Fuller, who wanted to make durable brushes that most people could afford, started selling his grooming products door-to-door in 1906. His enterprise blossomed into a million-dollar company. In first half of the 20th century, his Fuller Brush Company salesmen, who offered hair and cleaning brushes, became so familiar to American audiences that Donald Duck even played one in a Walt Disney animation.
  • In 1960, the first “unbreakable” plastic combs were introduced. The Cardinal Comb & Brush
