A hair receiver was used to store hair from the brush, which might then be used for hair art, hair pieces or to stuff items such as pincushions. The powder box obviously stored powder. Both boxes have three engraved long stemmed roses on their lids. Both pieces have their original boxes, although I forgot to photograph them.
Perfect for a lady's bedroom or boudoir.
The other silver pieces in the photos have sold.
The boxes are just under 7/16 inch (1.1 cm) in diameter.
