A Neat Hair Comb Discovery


As you all know, I love antique and vintage hair combs! The one above is from the master, Lalique. Imagine my delight when I discovered Etsy seller Paralogical! They are offering a 3d printed replica of this exact comb for sale in their shop! I just had to pass on this great little discovery to you all. I know I will be adding this comb to my collection soon, amazing what they can do with technology these days right?

  1. That really is awesome!!! It makes me wonder what else we'll see come down the 3D printer pipeline in terms of vintage reproductions. If someone figures out how to get Bakelite to work with a 3D printer they could have a gold mine on their hands! :)

    1. That would be a goldmine! Us vintage gals love our Bakelite, though I have wide hands so I cant wear bangles!

  2. I kept thinking that 3D printing would be a great way forward for these hair combs when you were posting such amazing images. It looks beautiful!

    The City of Sydney libraries have 3D printers that customers can book and use, although I suppose copying an entire hair comb might take a while. Do you have access to anything like that? You can start doing your own!

    1. Right? I definitely think 3D modeling and mold making could be super amazing for making replica combs...lets just say I have considered looking into actually doing it!

      That is really awesome that you have access to a resource like that! I cant think of anything like that around here, I am sure there are private companies around somewhere but I have yet to look into it. Perhaps one day!
