Vintage Hair Receiver Bavarian made, signed, Hand painted

It is said that starting in the Victorian era and throughout the years, people would save the hair of a loved one. Various memorabilia of the deceased person,s hair were woven into pendants or badges. Hair was saved in hair receivers like this one. Hair was put in the hole on top and then woven into relics. This piece is in excellent shape. No chips or cracks. I cannot determine who made it. The top has delicate roses and leaves painted on it. The color is in pale shades of green and yellow. The top comes off to collect the hair.The back shows the word, Bavaria and the name, M Haytrom, which may be the name of the person who painted this piece. These pieces were often part of dresser sets including a brush and a mirror.
