Antique JAPANESE CERAMIC HAIR RECEIVER Hand Painted Floral Pattern

A hand-painted Japanese hair receiver, done in white porcelain with stunning traditionally clad Japanese women and floral designed patterns.

We are pleased to present this beautiful hand-painted ceramic hair receiver. The lid features a combination of traditional Japanese women and lovely floral patterns. The main compartment is decorated with a series of small flower group patterns, and both pieces have a deep maroon colored trim.

A hair receiver is a small pot, with a hole in the lid, kept on the dressing table in the Victorian era to store hair removed from brushes and combs. The hair was recycled in a number of ways—notably for stuffing small bags, about 8–10 centimeters (3–4 inches) across, called ratts, used to bulk out women's hairstyles.

Human hair was also used for stuffing pincushions and small furnishing cushions. It was often paired with a matching trinket box or a powder jar or as part of a dressing table set, made mainly from porcelain, though glass, metal, and celluloid were also used.

This hair receiver is 2 1/4 inches high and has a diameter of 4 1/4 inches. It weighs 7 ounces.

Overall, this item is in very good condition. It does not have any chips, cracks, or crazing that we can find. Some of the dark trim is missing (25%) from ordinary use, but this is not unexpected considering the age of the item.

This hand painted ceramic hair receiver is the perfect addition to any ceramics or antique collection.
