Sunday, January 22, 2012 - Hint for Trivia giveaway

Super duper important update:   Mrs Deb E. formerly of Springvale Soap  has correctly identified the item as a Hair Receiver. 
Shortly after posting this update, I checked our facebook page and saw that Susan Sunderman had tried to post the answer on our blog but was unable to do so.  (Naughty eblogger site!)  Therefore, we have two winners!!  Congratulations, Ladies.

Word of the day:
Third Sunday in Ordinary Time
Saint(s) of the day : St. Vincent, Deacon and Martyr (+ 304)
Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Mark 1:14-20.

After John had been arrested, Jesus came to Galilee proclaiming the Gospel of God:
This is the time of fulfillment. The kingdom of God is at hand. Repent, and believe in the gospel.
As he passed by the Sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and his brother Andrew casting their nets into the sea; they were fishermen.
Jesus said to them, "Come after me, and I will make you fishers of men."
Then they abandoned their nets and followed him.
He walked along a little farther and saw James, the son of Zebedee, and his brother John. They too were in a boat mending their nets.
Then he called them. So they left their father Zebedee in the boat along with the hired men and followed him.

could someone please clarify what a "hair receiver" is?

Deb E. said...

I had never heard of such a thing either but here is the info I found at Wikipedia:

"A hair receiver is a small pot, with a hole in the lid, kept on the dressing table in the Victorian era to store hair removed from brushes and combs. The hair was recycled in a number of ways—notably for stuffing small bags, about 8–10 centimetres (3–4 in) across, called ratts, used to bulk out women's hairstyles. Human hair was also used for stuffing pincushions and small furnishing cushions.

It was often paired with a matching trinket box or a powder jar or as part of a dressing table set, made mainly from porcelain, though glass, metal, and celluloid were also used."
