The Habsburg Jaw and Other Royal Inbreeding Deformities. A genuinely interesting (serious and informative despite the quip) article.(TAG: ARTICLE; HISTORY; ART; HEREDITY; PUBLIC DOMAIN IMAGES)

Charles II of Spain was the last Hapsburg monarch. His family tree shows that all eight of his great-grandparents were descendants of Joanna and Philip I of Castile. Due to the severe effects of generations of inbreeding, he could not talk until he was 4, or walk until he was 8. He could not father children and was unable to chew. He could hardly talk due to a large tongue. It has been suggested that he suffered from rare disordered caused by his inbred lineage.

EL JOYEL RICO DE LOS AUSTRIA María Luisa Arnaiz Oleg Babkin (fotografía)    “El joyel rico” fue la joya por antonomasia de la Corona española hasta su desaparición tras la huida del rey José Bonaparte, a quien se le imputó su apropiación. Se trataba de un broche de oro de 20 quilates en cuyo centro tenía engarzado un diamante azul acero de 100 quilates, tallado en tabla y conocido por “El estanque”, el cual había adquirido Felipe II por 80 000 escudos de oro y mandado tallar; de él pendía “La peregrina”, perla de 58 quilates y medio en forma de pera hallada en aguas panameñas. El diamante había sido inventariado en 1808 con un valor de millón y medio de reales y se dice que pudo ser tallado en piezas más pequeñas para evitar su identificación, pero la perla, según algunos en manos de Elizabeth Taylor, fue subastada en 2011 y se vendió por 9 millones de euros.  María Tudor, segunda mujer de Felipe II, Antonio Moro Ana de Austria, cuarta mujer de Felipe II, Sánchez Coello Margarita de Austria, mujer de Felipe III, Velázquez Isabel de Borbón, mujer de Felipe IV,  Rodrigo de Villadrando María Luisa de Orleáns, mujer de Carlos II, García Hidalgo

The Moretta or Servetta Muta (trans: dumb maid-servant) is a black velvet, oval shaped mask that was worn by Venetian ladies. Covering all but the outer edge of the face, the Moretta was secured to the wearer by way of a small bit that was held in place by the teeth.

Beautiful Spanish Woman

This sale is for a celluloid mantilla style hair comb with figural Spanish dancers. PLEASE NOTE: we ship from the United Kingdom CONDITION: good vintage condition. The comb is made in very thin flexible celluloid. There are no breaks but is quite delicate and probably best kept for display. SIZE: 7 ins h x 5 ins w (18 x 13 cms) APPROXIMATE DATE: 1950s – 1960s DESCRIPTION: Combs like these are often called Spanish combs after the beautiful ornaments worn by Spanish ladies with their native dress. Such ornaments were worn in a characteristic manner, being placed such a way that the tall heading stood up proud. This enabled them to be viewed from all angles and for the details to be seen effectively outlined against the light. This handsome example was probably made in Spain for the tourist industry which increased in importance from the 1950s. It is made in faux tortoiseshell effect celluloid and depicts a figural flamenco dancer and his lady. FURTHER INFORMATION: This comb is of the type known as a Spanish or mantilla comb because it resembles the traditional ornaments worn by Spanish ladies with their native dress. In this tradition a beautiful lace scarf is draped over a high comb which was made of beautifully carved tortoiseshell. The use of the very tall Spanish comb has a very long history of use throughout the 19th century and has never been out of fashion in Spain. Nowadays they are an essential part of the costume used in flamenco and other forms of Spanish dance.
