Absolutely gorgeous antique to vintage French hallmarked .800 silver 5pc vanity set including a lovely 9 3/4" hand mirror and four brushes of various sizes! All with a striking guilloche style engraved or machined decoration, large oval medallions and ornate solitary "T" monograms! All five pieces bear the tiny French boar's head hallmark which designates them as being in at least .800 silver (80% pure so just under the .925 standard for "sterling" silver). Tiny diamond shaped silversmith marks are visible on each also but I simply cannot make out the initials and have been unable to find reference or narrow the date of manufacture. Thick & heavy French silver though, these are overly heavy compared to other silver vanity brush sets we've had in the past. Made to last in style, and superb condition, as evidenced by our pictures. A truly magnificent vanity set, perfect alongside sterling perfume and/or vanity jars! One you'll love to own and show off so maybe displayed in the guest or main bath? Love them!
Very good-excellent condition. No dents, damage or repairs to the silver and all of the brushes' bristles are original and in great shape (just sanitized, too). The original beveled mirror is intact and only has a few minor surface scuffs. The set, with mirror and brush bristles, weighs 25.9 troy ounces or 804 grams. See pictures for measurements.
