There are currently none of these for sale on the online market! Even more special is the occasion - the 20th anniversary of the movie! The butterfly comb made by J. Peterman Company is an authorized replica of the original movie prop used in Titanic, as worn by Kate Winslet as Rose DeWitt Bukater. This is the only Titanic butterfly hair comb' authorized for sale by 20th Century Fox.
The comb is stamped on the reverse with a'1998 Fox' stamp of authenticity; it comes in its own [satin] presentation box and even includes a'Certificate of Authenticity' from 20th Century Fox. The butterfly motif mounted upon the comb is of brass oxidised plating. It has Tiffany-like translucent wings made from black, sea green and milky transparent epoxy simulating plique-à-jour.
The butterfly body is accented with an aventurine cabochon and a black faceted stone. Aventurine is translucent greenish quartz mineral that is internally granular. It is often mistaken for jade, a valuable stone of green. A cabochon is a domed gemstone which has a highly polished curved surface without faceting.
The ornament is beautifully finished with a plastic simulated tortoise comb. Notice that in this version, the comb has ten tines.
All other versions of the butterfly comb have fewer tines, usually seven, and this is their main distinguishing feature. The comb mount of the Peterman was probably custom made. Other versions utilise what appears to be a standard blank, or one cut down from a larger version. Another point to notice is that in the Peterman the feelers of the insect are spread out so that they are joining the wings. The wings of the Peterman butterfly are also slightly narrower and flatter than the replicas, (Simitras Exquisite Things).
This comb is in MINT condition! The box has slight wear to the edges and the satin cushion has a very small tear near the upper right hand corner of where the comb lies.
Never worn - hardly ever taken out of the box! A MUST HAVE for the true Titanic Movie fan!
