Stunning Walker and Hall English Silver and Faux Tortoiseshell Dressing Table Set. Birmingham 1927
This very beautiful set would have graced the dressing table of a real life lady of the gentry.
Made by renowned British silversmiths Walker and Hall each piece is made from silver and backed with tortoiseshell, then the faux shell is inlaid with silver to stunning effect.
The set consists of 5 pieces;- 2 hairbrushes, a clothes brush, a hand mirror and a comb
Each piece is marked with the Walker and Hall makers mark, the Anchor for Birmingham, the lion for silver and the date letter C for 1927.
Condition is excellent for the age, the bevelled mirror just has one dark spot on the edge of the glass which can be seen in the pictures. There is some very minor wear to the boar hair bristles of the brushes but I'm being picky there. All brushes have been sanitized.
Please see the photographs for,clarification.
Measures: 2 Brushes 9 1/4 inches long x 3 inches wide. Mirror 9 3/4 inches x 5 1/4 inches wide
