A very large collection of antique Human hair. The Hair came from an estate that had wigs produced in the 19th century by "Plucker & Ahrens, Wig Makers of New York" and "G. Shindhelm, Wig Maker, 232 West 41st St, NY". There are 37 ponytails and braids as shown, I did not include the smaller pieces in the count. All except one look and feel like human hair the single piece feels like it could be horse hair.

Shipping & Insurance is $20.00 within the USA, foreign shipping rates are determined by destination.

No Reserve


All of the hair seems to be in good condition for it's age. The hair does smell a bit musty but a good airing out should remedy this as it has been stored away a very long time. Please note the textile pieces are not included.
