Welcome to random Wiki of the Day where we read the summary of a random Wikipedia page every day.

Our random article today is Hair receiver.

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.

This recording reflects the Wikipedia text as of 19:44 UTC on Thursday, 17 August 2017.
