The 'ewww factor' Hair Receivers and their uses

Jewelry Watch Fob

It was noted that the word "ratt" or "rats" was not particularly appealing for the use of saving hair in lovely and ornate Hair Receivers during the Victorian era. I have decided to post a few other items that were designed from the use of hair saved after brushing long luxurious locks....more appealing or not - you decide.... Mourning jewelry.... men's watch fobs to hold their pocket watches.....bracelets... all mementos of loved ones. What do you think?
