A Unique Delicate and very old Green Jasperware Hair Receiver. Featuring A Decorative applied white Floral motif and Winged Angel / Cherub Death Head " Soul Effigies or Cherubim". Looking at the applied winged faces they are reminiscent of the Death heads often seen on Gravestones in the New England , Nova Scotia and many other Graveyards World Wide. These old death head carvings may be seen in the photos I have provided taken from " Life how short Eternity how long" Gravestone Carvings and Carvers in Nova Scotia. They can represented such beliefs as : Guardian angels , Signifying the departed soul , cherubs customarily seen on tombstone art. This receiver is impressed on the bottom with numbers hard to read but I can view 2442. No visible makers mark but I believe this is was made in Germany Schafer & Vater Era. Measures about 4 1/4" by 3 1/4" by 1 3/4" tall. No cracks but I can view a few little chipped areas around the top rim and to the applied ware near the bottom rim. Apart from this vintage wear a nicely preserved and rare little treasure! Age appropriate wear. Please view the many photos I have shown to better view this unique and rare treasure.
