Dulci! Thanks for posting the shadow box. I DO remember that you posted it in your Journal a while back!

Liluri, I agree! I'm going to place my combs straight, not topsy-turvy!

Levelek, your hair fork is gorgeous! Is it sterling silver?

Hi David and Nastasska! I'll be sure to post pictures.

Oh TammySue, I'm glad it's not just me that the topsy turvy display bothers. Mostly it's that there seems to be an overlap of some of the combs, but I'd want to straighten them up as well.

Thanks Lamb and TammySue! Didn't want to hog your thread, just wanted to share it beauty Yes it's sterling silver and it's art nouveau (don't have it here so can't check the exact date).

Oh, not a problem ever! I LOVE art nouveau! The design motifs are gorgeous from that era.

I agree, I think the combs would look nicer tidied up in that picture, and a velvet background would be lovely.

I, too, wear the hair combs in my collection; keep them stored in a large silverware box, lined with velvet, which I've gerry-rigged with small bunjis to hold and protect the combs.

I love my combs, but have gathered them with the specific goal of wearing them.

It doesn't bother me to see off-kilter combs displayed, but they should be done artistically so - not where it looks like they were simply tossed into the frame any which way, covered and hung!

Having them all straight and prim would be a bit stagnant, for me, as I like the appearance of motion and movement, the flow of one finely crafted piece into another, drawing the eye around in an entertaining manner.

As it hangs right now, I know those combs are embarrassed to death! ;o)

I've never seen this thread. I love the display that Dulci posted (even though there seems to be no plan to the "organization"). And levelek, I love your silver fork! gorgous! (also, I laughed out loud at your avatar)!

Tammy, when are you going to get those photos up?!
