HERE IS AN EXTREMELY RARE ANTIQUE CIRCA 1830 COMPLETE SET OF WIG, POWDER BELLOWS, AND POWDER HORN CONTAINER FOR THE WHITE POWDER FOR THE WIG. ALONG WITH THE ORIGINAL TOLEWARE CASE AND STAND.

THE ENTIRE PIECE IS ID'D AND BELONGED TO PERCY SAUNDERS ESQUIRE WHO SERVED AS A TOWN CLERK.  HIS NAME IS ON THE CASE AND SEWN INTO THE BACK OF THE WIG.  THE ORIGINAL PATENT LABEL FOR THE WIG IS ALSO SEWN IN.

IT IS MADE BY THE EDE SON & RAVENSCROFT ROBE MAKERS TO THE KING & QUEEN 93&94 CHANCERY LANE LONDON - THEY ARE STILL IN BUSINESS TO THIS DAY!

THE HORN POWDER HOLDER POSSIBLY PRE-DATES 1830 INTO THE 1700S BASED ON THE INITIALS ENGRAVED ON THE BOTTOM. IT HAS A MORE 18TH CENTURY STYLE.  THE CAP OF THIS WOULD BE TAKEN OFF AND THEN THE POWDER WOULD BE POURED INTO THE BELLOWS (WHERE THE ROUND MEDAL DISCS ARE).  THE BELLOWS WOULD THEN BE USED TO SPRAY THE WHITE POWDER ON THE WIG. THE LEATHER OF THE BELLOWS HAVE TORN IN BACK.  I'M SURE A PROFESSIONAL RESTORER COULD RE-LEATHER THE BACK TO SEAL IT BACK UP BUT FOR NOW, THE BELLOWS ARE JUST SHOW PIECES. 

THE WIG ITSELF IS IN FANTASTIC CONDITION FOR ITS AGE.  THE CURLS ARE STILL HOLDING NICELY AND OVERALL THE STITCHING INSIDE IS IN GREAT CONDITION.

THE STAND AND CASE FOR ITS AGE & USE IS IN GREAT SHAPE.  THERE IS LOSS TO SOME OF THE TOLEWARE BUT OVERALL IT IS IN STELLAR CONDITION!

MR. SAUNDERS HAD A SMALL HEAD AS THE WIG IS FOR A SMALL HEADED MAN.

THE CASE OF THE PIECE MEASURES AROUND 11 INCHES TALL (NOT COUNTING BRASS HANDLE).  IT IS AROUND 9 INCHES WIDE, AND 10 INCHES BACK TO FRONT.

 

DUE TO PRICE AND WEIGHT, I CANNOT SHIP INTERNATIONALLY EXCEPT FOR CANADA.  SHIPPING WITHIN THE UNITED STATES WILL BE VIA EXPRESS 1 DAY MAIL.
