An on-line exhibition at the Creative Museum which welcomes Jen Cruse, the author of "THE COMB, Its History and Development". She owns one of the most beautiful comb and hairpin collections in the world and has agreed to present a selection of her favourite pieces via the Creative Museum website - ... -jen-cruse

The Creative Museum website is a very interesting concept and well worth exploring. Here is an extract from information about them:
CREATIVE MUSEUM: a private collection remarkable for its quality, beauty and the rarity of its pieces.

It brings together more than 2,500 head ornaments

This heritage from around the world, covers many eras, styles and cultures. It is essentially composed of hair combs, but also extends to pins, barrettes, headbands, crowns, tiaras and diadems. It specializes in everything to do with hair adornments.

These items, usually very rarely studied or collected, are bursting with information of all kinds: ethnological, sociological, technological, artistic… They have been on display previously in exhibitions and they always aroused surprise, admiration and interest. But this is not enough. The best way to reveal this collection is surely via a website.

CREATIVE MUSEUM: a totally virtual museum

There is nowhere you can see this collection, since it is private. As the owners want to share its resources with everyone, CREATIVE MUSEUM will do its best to offer all the services you could find in a museum: a temporary exhibition with a special theme, a view of the permanent collection, background information and more: expertise.......
