Default 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.

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!

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!
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!
