Things that are round….

How cool is this? It’s the Hansen Writing Ball. The first commercial typewriter ever made. Invented in 1865 by the reverend and principal of the Royal Institute for the deaf-mutes in Copenhagen, Rasmus Malling- Hansen.

I love the look of it. Apparently Freidrich Nietzsche used one:)

And…while we are in the realm of balls…check THIS out! Beetle Sphere by Ichwan Noor at the Art Basel Hong Kong fair in Hong Kong.

Last but not least in my mini gallery of round things….A hair perming device from Germany. 1929. Waves supposed to last a year!

Ok, ok, this isn’t round but it was so pretty I had to share it with you! A toaster from the 1920s.
