Catalogue Description: A short wooden comb. It is coarsely made and is surmounted by found knobs. It is undecorated except for two incised lines one at the top of the comb directly below the knobs and another line directly above the thirty-two teeth of the comb. The comb is curved horizontally and it is hard to tell if this was intentional or due to drying of the wood. The end teeth are of unequal width. Condition: Complete. Three teeth have broken tips and the wood of all the teeth is very porous.
