A very fine set of vanity jars and scent bottles surviving from an early 20th century traveler's vanity case, and wonderful now for your dressing table. The date code on the string of sterling hallmarks tells us this set was made in 1912. Imagine a world in 1912, not yet consumed by the crushing events only 2 years away in the future: WWI. A world where the Golden Age still was active and people enjoyed Grand Tour traveling with elegant cases filled with such items as these. I'll let you look up the silversmith, and try to learn who "Flore", the engraved name, might have been. I love the history almost as much as the old treasures. And these will be gorgeous, facet cut crystal as they are, with the 18k gold layer on fine English sterling silver, along with your favorite perfumes on a vanity mirror, dressing table. Photos tell all, including the measurements.
Very good condition for age and type, not much if any loss to the gold on the sterling silver. Each top is hallmarked and it is a fine matching set. Originally there would have been matching powder jar, brushes, and perhaps a few other items. But here we have the 5 bottles as you see them, no chips, no breaks, no dents. Ready for YOUR Grand Tour.
Our photos are large and clear. We do expect our customers to review them all, evaluate the item based on both our description and our images. Thanks for all the compliments - we love what we do! Antiques & Uncommon Treasure - all the best, all the time!
