Hey Jim...hope you are well.
I've thought about exactly that....mostly because we did a cutout (in old officers housing at Ft. Devens) from a colony that moved into an old unused stovepipe in the wall...the combs were almost perfectly round, and were perpendicular to the axis of the pipe.
The contractor was due to show up the next day to redo the whole kitchen (including pulling out the walls), so we didn't have to be neat about things.
That hive is beautiful...as is, I think those would have to be considered "frames".
I would steam and put a twist in the round "frames", making them into mobius strips...then it could be a TBH!
