Fabulous brush and mirror vanity dresser set by the master smith known specifically for just these products: La Pierre. The company started in New York, circa 1886. This fine set an exquisite representative of Art Nouveau styling. Each piece has very deep repousse floral foliate decoration with fine textured ground. The leaf on the mirror is simply wonderful. There are some nice strapping areas, adding even more dimension and grace. The central area meant for a monogram is waiting yet to be personalized! The original mirror is bevelled and in pretty good condition; a spot here and there. Overall condition is very good. A couple of flattened areas on the rim of the mirror side, and one dimple on top side. The brush is very close to flawless. The bristles are darkened with age; but appear to be complete and in good condition. Quite a nice find.
Marks: each piece bears the La Pierre mark and "Sterling", which is the .925 silver guarantee in the US. Dimensions: The mirror is 9.25" long, 5.5" wide and weighs 550 grams. The brush is 8.75" long, 3" wide and weighs 185 grams.
