Indonesian comb?

As always, I found this beautiful object in a yardsale near my place. The seller told me it was a comb, a decorative one. I’m not sure that it was only decorative, I don’t know if it’s a hair comb or a weaving comb. From the design, I would say it comes from an Indonesian island. But it resonates so well with Kuba textiles from Zaïre.

J’ai trouvé ce peigne ( à cheveux? Pour tisser?) à une brocante, comme d’habitude. Je crois qu’il vient d’Indonésie.
