More Than McCoy

Circa: 1800's
Manufacturer: unknown
Antique hair receiver. Gorgeous crystal or cut glass jar with pot metal or quadruple plate heavy lid. The glass glows yellow under a black light so it was made before 1917. It sparkles and shines and has no chips or cracks. These hair receivers can be put to new use as pot pourri holders in powder rooms, drawers, vanity tables, to scent your rooms/drawers. This beautiful jar is 3.75 tall x 4 wide across body. It is likely shown in the one of the antique glass books but I don't have time to scour them. The Victorians used these to save hair and then used the hair for wreaths, etc. They had a box/jar/plate for everything and never threw anything out! 11/19
