Antique vanity set for 1920s. Hand painted Nippon Powder Jar & Hair Receiver with Lids, painted art nouveau floral design, purple flowers, pink rose buds & greenery. Also has reddish trim and gold on the lids and rim. The hand painting is not intricate but very soft and lovely. They are in great condition; no chips or cracks. They measure approx. 4” round and 2 ¼” tall. They would be a pretty addition to your dresser. They are both marked “China E-OH, Hand Painted Nippon”.
Although rare today, the hair receiver was a common fixture on the dressing tables of women from Victorian times to the early decades of the 20th century. Its purpose was to save hair culled from the hairbrush and comb, which were used vigorously on a daily basis. The hair could then be stuffed into pincushions or pillows. Small pillows could be stuffed with hair, which was less prickly than pinfeathers. But possibly most important, hair receivers made the creation of ratts possible. A ratt (sometimes spelled rat) is a small ball of hair that was inserted into a hairstyle to add volume and fullness. The ratt was made by stuffing a sheer hairnet until it was about the size of a potato and then sewing it shut.
