This fantastic and gorgeous dresser set was manufactured in 1904 by the prestigious Unger Brothers Company, of Newark New Jersey. It is done in the Love's Dream pattern which was one of their most popular. It shows Cupid kissing Psyche.
The set consists of four pieces, a mirror, hair brush, clothing brush and dresser jar. All are hallmarked with the Unger Brothers logo and Sterling 925 Fine.
The mirror is 9" in length and is in good antique condition. It contains a bevelled mirror, which may or may not be the original, but is in good shape. The top silver rim is slightly bent inward and there are a few minor dents around the rim.
The hair brush is 9" in length and is in fine antique condition aside from a few tiny rim dents around the brush.
The clothing brush measures about 7" in length and also seems to be in good condition with very minor dents around the edge.
The dresser jar has a nice cut crystal bottom which is in fine shape. The sterling lid has one minor dent. It has a diameter of about 2 1/4".
The workmanship on these pieces are outstanding. The mirror and hair brush have embossed dolphin heads and women's faces at the base. This pattern appears to be inspired by the works of Alphonse Muncha the leading Art Nouveau illustrator.
It is rare to find this pattern, and to get four pieces of it is truly remarkable. Don't miss out on this opportunity.
Referenced shipping cost is inclusive of signature delivery confirmation, as required by PayPal on all purchases exceeding $250.00. I've indicated shipment by Parcel post since I believe I will need at least a 12" by 12" x 12" box and my local post office usually measures these as being oversized. If priority mail is practical without costing an additional $20.00, then it will be shipped via that method, at the same referenced price.
Please Note: For any desired international shipment, advance approval is required before placement of orders. Out of country shipment must be by express mail international. Please see my shop terms of sale.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
