An excellent Chancay comb from Peru, ca. 1100 – 1450 AD. This rare weaving tool is 4-1/2” long, 2-1/4” wide. Beautifully made from split reed, most likely Carrizo, with flattened points on both sides. This rare textile weaving tool is bound with the brown and tan braided thread typical of Chancay textile manufacture and retains a small handle. Choice example, with lots of alpaca hair.
