Metal Hair Comb

Metal Hair Comb

This hair comb has three different metals in it: a copper dot, a brass tear drop and swirl, and nickel silver frame and tines. Nickel silver is a stiff metal alloy of copper, nickel, and zinc so it is quite sturdy. This comb has 6 tines. The ends of each tine have a weld of nickel to create smooth tips so you won't scratch your scalp. The comb has a gentle curve to it so it will fit snug against your head. I hand make each comb so they are unique. The one you see here is the one you will receive.

These work at holding hair very well like the hair barrettes we make but do it in a different way. This comb will securely hold hair in a French twist, bun, or French roll.

This comb measures 4.75 inches (12.1 cm) long with the tines measuring 3.75 inches (9.5 cm) long and the entire comb measures 2.25 inches (5.7 cm) wide.

We do not coat our jewelry with any lacquer or other chemicals so the metals on this comb will tend to tarnish over time but can be polished up with any silver, brass, or copper cleaner. Also an old tooth brush and some toothpaste can do just as well. You can also just leave the piece alone and let the metals fade to softer tones.

Old Magic Lantern Petzval lens with Gaffe tape

Old Magic Lantern Petzval lens with Gaffe tape

The treasure hunt landed me a Petzval lens out of a Bausch & Lomb Magic Lantern projector, of 1910-1920 vintage. The Petzval type of design is popular for portraits, because of its 3-dimensional image quality. Very sharp at the center, but fuzzy and dark at the edges, thus makes the subject pop while leaving everything else soft and mellow.

It was a bit dusty, but nothing cannot be cleaned by a good doze of dish washing detergent. It does not have a lens board to mount on so I have to make do with two empty 4x5 film boxes and some generous application of Gaffe tape.

There is no aperture control, but fortunately there is a factory cut slit for so-called "waterhouse stops". On the other hand, who want to shoot this old lady stopped down? There is no shutter, so the black hat trick or a Packard Shutter is needed. Just a few weeks, my carpenter will finish my shutter box and I'm ready to go!
