Vintage Hair Comb Collectors
 
I collect vintage hair combs and although my collection is small and much loved, I am slowly adding to it.

To the hair comb collectors out there, how do you display your combs? I currently have mine in a floor display case with glass top, along with my collection of brooches, but I would love to hang them on the wall in a display case/shadow box. Any ideas? Thanks!!

I'd maybe ask an antiques dealer that specialised in combs on storage tips, they'd know about what materials might be best and what to avoid. I like the idea of shadow boxes but they might be better supported somehow to show them off and protect them at the same time. Just a thought.

I second what Liluri posted. I would also like to add that I would Love to see pictures of both collections.:innocent:

Thank you Liluri and Coppercurls!

I found a wall display which should work out nicely for my hair combs!
I'll work on getting pictures of my collections.

I am certainly looking forward to pictures of your hair comb collection, Tammy, and I am sure it is quite lovely!:flower:

Tammy Sue, I think the shadow box idea is a great one. Here is a picture I took of a shadow box vintage comb display in a Pizza Parlour in Colorado Springs a few years ago.



I thought it was funny that the hostess seated under this display, I was wearing a Ficcare in my hair that day.

Wow, how did you resist trying to take the pretties home? Or at least straighten some of them up to show them off better :)

Ooh, those are lovely! :drool:
Yes please for pictures, Tammy Sue!

I have one vintage hair fork that I won on ebay, and that I think is gorgeous... I love it so much in fact I haven't dared to wear it in public yet, for fear that I'd lose it!

Levelek, that fork is just gorgeous!!
