A Fine Edwardian to Victorian vanity set comprised of 10 items (title says 9, but a second hair brush will be included which has a repair to handle). The set is a stunning example of fine amber-colored blond shell of finest quality. The brushes are boar-bristled, in unused condition and sanitized. No loss to the brushes shown. There is a second long-handled hair brush which will be sent along, as noted, and it does have a repaired break at the point where handle joins the head of the brush. The rouge pots are miniatures of the larger powder jar, and a pair of very large cologne or lotions bottles carry the set into the larger-than-standard size. The hand mirror is excellent, not a bit of loss to the silvering on that heavy beveled glass. A fine set for display on dressing table.
Very good to excellent condition for age and type. There are two flaws to note in the primary 9 pieces, and both involve jars. There is a hairline in the shell top to the powder jar (marked in our images for your review) and one very small hairline on the rim of one of the small rouge pots, as well. Otherwise, no flaws to note in these 9 pieces. As noted, a 10th piece will be sent out with the set, and it is another hair brush, but it does have a nicely repaired break, as noted. I have not put any value on it, but we'll send it out, making the set a full 10 pieces.
