Tudor Nit Comb Found Mudlarking on the Thames

I found a small section of a tudor comb on my first ever mudlarking trip in September 2011. It’s made of bone, so smooth to touch and beautifully made. One side is a regular comb, the other a nit comb.

When I picked it up I asked my sister whether she thought it was anything of interest, she thought not. Fortunately I ignored her and asked our guide what it might be. I found another comb section a few months later, but left it there for someone else to find.
