Beautiful and all original Art Deco large hard cased vanity set dating to around the late 1930'S. The hard shell case has an elegant exterior with a striped broadcloth finish, and gilt brass catch, it measures 12 3/4" by 9 1/2" by 3" deep.
Inside is lined with a brown satin type fabric, the fully fitted interior contains:
- a hand mirror with a beautiful stripe and foliage design in yellow and lime and green
- a matching hair brush
- a gilt nail file
- a gilt comb
- two matched Art Deco style ridged glass powder jars with gilt lids
- two matching cologne bottles also with ridged sides and gilt lids
- a matching long slim round bottle.
The set is in very good condition for the age, the leather handle is a little flaky and brittle, and I would not recommend it for carrying the case, a couple of the bottles have very slight cracking to the gilt lids. I also think the comb insert may be a very good replacement (it fits perfectly into the gilt holder, but is a little narrower than the fitting in the case).
Overall this is a wonderful set that displays outstandingly, it would be a great display piece in a dressing room, it is elegant and very of the period.
