I have a pair of these farm machinery gears. When I purchased them I loved their shape and the worn mottled look. I was planning on hanging them on the wall for some architectural interest.

But to confuse the plan, I saw them painted and framed.
And then I found another image of the gears painted white and framed.
I can't decide what to do. I love them with their original finish, but I also like them painted and framed. What do you guys think? I'm kinda leaning towards leaving them in all their lovely rustiness and maybe framing them as they are. Your thoughts?
