This particular comb measures 122 millimeters in length, 42 millimeters in width, and 10 millimeters in diameter. Comprised of bone, the double-sided comb has darkened with age and has a rustic light brown coloring. On the upper side of this comb, the teeth sit extremely close together and chunks are broken off in two significant places close to the center. This may have happened due to use or time. On the opposite side, the teeth are larger and further apart. This side of the comb has less damage to it, despite a few missing teeth. A decorated section in the middle connects the two sides. The simplistic pattern of intermittent circles line in the middle portion.
