Superb c.1770 Powdered Wig with original wood stand and tin box. Wigs served a purpose but mostly they were a fashion statement, a measure of wealth and class status. Wig wearing was hygienic in nature and they were powdered predominately white or off white. Wigs for both men and women could be colored: violet, blue, pink or yellow. Wig powder was finely ground starch that was scented with orange flower, lavender or orris root.
