Antique 19thc Victorian Hair Receiver Porcelain Vanity Dresser Box Roses Painted For Sale
HAIR WE GO!
Some of my Dear Shoppers may find this item strange, or call it a flower frog, but it is actually a 19th c antique Victorian Hair Receiver made of glazed porcelain and handpainted with soft pink roses on a green frosted background kissed with gold gilt trim.
During the Victorian era, it was fashionable for ladies to gather and create hand crafts from the materials around them while dressed in their glorious fashions; tinsel art, seashell art, and hair pictures come to mind as well as paper punch art needlework. This lovely rose covered box was kept on the oak dresser to save ("receive") brushed out hair strands each evening at bedtime, and when sufficient was saved, tiny woven flowers could be fashioned on wire and set under shadowbox frames; perhaps you've seen one in an antiques shop and wondered about it. It was the latest craze just as beading craft is hot today among artists!
Unmarked 2 piece top and bottom Receiver may possibly be European given the decor, and many were Limoges and Nippon produced. Condition Report is no cracks, no chips, measures 4" wide by 2.5" tall similar shape like a sea urchin with central hole in middle. Please refer to the pictures. To be picky might say gold is slight worn on top from handling, but it is there and shine softly on top and bottom halves. Lady Ellens is a smoke free clean sutlery boutique with experience in the antiques trades since 1987; I found this over the summer in a South Jersey estate glorious old Victorian home.
