Photo Number 1021

This is a CdV from the antique shop in Brainerd Minnesota.

CdV Lady with weird hair  Brainerd antiques

Often times ladies would collect the hair from their hair brushes.  With that hair they would make “rats” .. rats were a kind of a hair piece that could be pinned into your hair where ever you wanted fuller hair.  I think this lady may have had a rat in the front of her make it stand up.  She appears to have a braid at the back of her head.

Her dress has somewhat poufy sleeves, has a high collar with white trim and a brooch.  This photo is most likely from the early 1890’s.

Thanks for stopping by.  Do come again:)
