The comb would have been one of the items in a Burmese court lady's cosmetic box known as a bi-it together with oil, perfumes, a few tresses of hair and thanahka (powder).    This comb is believed to be of royal provenance as the strict sumptuary laws of the Burmese court restricted the use of precious stones. circa 1777-1800
