THINGS, Trinket Dish (Hand Painted)


For your THINGS. This small trinket cup is hand painted with goldtone paint and lid to match! The hole in the lid led me down a rabbit hole. Why is it there? Surprisingly creepy, in the victorian era they had a "hair receiver" which was often paired with a matching trinket box, powder jar or as part of a dressing table set. The hair receiver was used to store the hair removed from brushes and combs to be used for stuffing in bags and small furnishing cushions.... However I think we might just throw our edibles in there, those are our favorite "things". 

Brand:  Lefton China

According to Nancy's Collectibles the label with a crown encircled with "Lefton China, Hand Painted, Reg.U.S. Pat. Off." means this dish was made between 1949-1955! Wowwwyyy. Please note this item is vintage. The paint is not perfect although it has held up well for its age.
