~ Gorgeous matching antique leaded cut crystal hair receiver and powder box. A pretty daisy or cornflower design is deeply hand cut and etched (not intaglio) into each of the tops.

~ The lid's sides are covered with a deeply etched laurel design. The bases also have laurels as well as flowers cut into them. The bottoms of the bases have a huge brilliant star burst pattern.

~ These pieces have a beautiful ring to them. Very heavy, very old, and very beautiful-the glass is clear and not cloudy. You can see the rainbows from light hitting them in some of the pics!


~ Each piece is a smidgen over 3 inches tall and 5 inches in diameter. A search for similar designs will show you that they easily go for one hundred dollars and up-even with chips- FOR JUST ONE piece of the set.


~ This hair receiver top is not removable. Did it ever come off? We are not sure. Was it glued at some point many years ago or is the top just stuck? Again we are not sure. We mention it because we can see what would appear to be a lip under a lid (it is crystal and see through) and you can see what appear to be several small chips inside, but we see no glue. There are NO CRACKS- the crystal is otherwise intact and whole.

~ The powder box top does come off and there are a few flea bites on the edge of the base. The biggest sliver chip is on the bottom of the powder box lid and it is very small-approx 1/4 inch wide. You can see it in the pic next to my pinky. Otherwise this piece is in extraordinary condition especially when you consider its age.

~ What in the world is a hair receiver? Women used them to save their hair from their hair brushes. They would use the collected hair to create a "ball"(also called a ratt) which would be used to help create their poofy Victorian hair styles. Women also used hair for embroidery to create special keepsakes/ jewelry for loved ones.
