Art Deco Nippon Handpainted Hexagon Hair Receiver ~ Excellent Condition.
Circa 1918-1921, this is an extraordinarily beautiful, handpainted porcelain hair receiver made by Nippon.
Hair receivers were not uncommon during the Victorian period and were routinely used until the 1950s. This hair receiver stands out from the rest by its interesting design of rounded edges along a hexagon shape.
It features beautiful, handpainted roses in light and dark pink hues and is trimmed in a gold-painted, beaded design. It measures approximately 3" high x 4" wide.
It is marked "Nippon Handpainted" on the bottom and it is without chips or cracks. There is scattered light wear to the gold-painted finish and the photos show this very well.
The skilled craftsmanship of this hair receiver is amazing. It is a beautiful vanity piece to be enjoyed and appreciated.
