The firm of R. Blackinton & Company was established in 1862, when Roswell Blackinton, Walter Ballou, and Thomas Mann formed a copartnership. The concern originally manufactured book clasps, and during the Civil War made clasps for Bibles used by the soldiers. Mr. Mann retired in 1867, and the firm continued without further change until the death of Mr. Blackinton, in 1906.
This beautiful vanity set was one of their top-of-the-line sets. I have collected for over 25 years and never have I seen more than 3 matching R. Blackington vanity pieces until I found this very rare set and the dresser set we have listed in another of our listings! The cuting on the glass on the power box and the two cream jars are the same pattern as the hand enamel pattern on the guilloche enameled tops. It just doesn't get any better than this set!! This Set includes:
The enamel is in excellent plus condition with no nicks, chips, cracks, crazing, deep scratches, abrasions or repairs. The artistry is extremely well done with multiple shades and vivid coloration. The sterling is also excellent plus with no rips, dents, cracks, holes, deep scratches, abrasions or repairs with the rim being very well rounded. The lids fits very firmly and remove easily with a twist movement. All pieces are marked
The glass has no residue, fogging or cloudiness. The bases has some of those faint, tiny, all over surface scratches consistent with use on a vanity. The entire vanity set was someones prized possession and extremely well taken care of!
