Nippon hair receiver
In the Victorian Era, when women would brush their hair, they would empty their combs and brushes into a hair receiver! Once collected, the hair would be used to stuff small pillows, or even be made into pin cushions! The collected hair would even be used to add more volume to the hair for certain hairstyles.
Today, it could be used as a jewelry dish!
- This porcelain hair receiver comes from Nippon. Nippon is the Japanese word for the country of Japan. The practice of stamping a piece of Japanese porcelain with the word "Nippon" stopped in 1921.
