These cute and stylish recycled bobby pins are from a vintage 1941 Royal DeLuxe Typewriter. This model was the first model in a series of the Royal Quiet DeLuxe line that outsold any other portables of the time.

Ernest Hemingway's machine of choice was the Royal portable typewriter and especially the Quiet DeLuxe model!

I carefully and lovingly removed each of the keys by hand and cleaned them. For these bobby pins, I affixed the key to a lead-free copper based antique bronze finish bobby pin blank, with a special adhesive to make it last a lifetime.

These pieces have been carefully and lovingly assembled with the finest parts and adhesives, but are delicate and must be handled with care.

All of my pieces are created in my smoke-free Baltimore workshop and are delivered to you in a pretty black organza pouch.
