Tortoise Color Celluloid Vanity Dresser Set Boxes Vintage 1910s 1920s
Very vintage late 1910s through 1920s tortoise shell colored celluloid vanity or dresser set, most good, some with issues as photographed, and described. The hand mirror, hair brush, two clothes or gents brushes, powder box, hair receiver all good, no issues. The divided hairpin box has the edging missing from the lid on the inner rim but still sits on it to present well, the rouge pot has the rim unglued as shown but with epoxy can be fixed back in place, the glass lined cream jar has a shrinkage split as shown but the lid still fits tightly. Mirror glass is sound and clear, bristles on all three brushes are tight. The gold decoration on the pieces has even wear consistent wit age and dusting, as seen in the photos. Epoxy must be used rather than any super glue, as super glue will not stick to celluloid. I will of course combine multiple item purchases for actual cost only shipping, by combined weight.
