This is an old dresser set with several matching pieces. There are two covered boxes, one round and one oval, a little comb and a soft bristled brush. The boxes have cream colored celluloid bases with amber or caramel colored celluloid lids that extend past the edge of the box. The lids have a piece of decorated fabric encased between two layers of celluloid and a thin pink detail line painted on the outer edge of the dome. The fabric has a pretty, stitched floral design in pink, turquoise and yellow. The brush also has the cream and amber combination with the fabric inset and the comb is the amber with painted details in the matching colors. This set could have been used for a child's or baby's room.
The base of the round box measures about 2 ¾” in diameter and it measures about 1 ½” high. The oval box measures about 2 1/4” by 3 3/8” and it measures about 1 ¼” high. Both are in very good condition with minimal wear and no damage. The comb measures about 4 1/8” by 15/16” and is in good condition but has a slight bow to it. The brush measures about 4 ¾” by 1 5/8” and is also in nice condition however there is a little discoloration that can be seen under the translucent amber celluloid. I tend to think it has something to do with the process by which the two different celluloids were put together.
