Description The comb, which has floral terminals, has on one side a scene of a man and seated woman preparing to play "kick foot" in a tilt yard as spectators watch from behind the railing. On the reverse are two scenes. On the left, two nude boys, one with a bow and the other with a hand cannon, shoot at a sitting duck. On the right, a youth pulls off the stocking of a seated woman. The scenes are set against a coarsely crosshatched ground. The small and large teeth have all been replaced by sections inset into the frame.
