This incredible vintage travel case has 2 brushes, 1 comb and 5 glass bottles, each with beautiful blue guilloche enamel decoration.
Each piece in the set is held snugly inside the case with a small strap and snap.
The inside of the case is lined with elegant taupe grosgrain and features a mirror on the underside of the lid.
Even the mirror is held in place by two straps with snaps on each side; this makes it easy to remove should you need a mirror near at hand.
There are two short lidded jars with angular repeating cuts around the sides, giving them an elegant "faceted" look.
The lids are not threaded but rather simply snap snugly into place around the neck of each jar.
Both the tall and short rectangular jars have the same kind of lid. The lid of the bottle is lidded, however, making it ideal for storing liquids.
The hair brush and clothing-brush have lovely light boar-bristles set into wood, while the ivory-colored teeth of the comb are made of celluloid.
The piece has been professionally tested and determined to be genuine celluloid.
Each brush features a breathtaking guilloche handle while every bottle and jar has an incredible guilloche lid.
The exposed brass around on each lid shows a bit of wear and darkening, though this is to be expected. A small area of the brass on each piece bears a tiny stamp reading "Germany".
The short, round jars each show a small chip in the glass, though they are barely noticeable. There is an area of enamel loss on the top of the bottle's lid as well.
Despite some cosmetic issues and oxidization to the exposed brass metals, the set remains in good vintage condition.
The olive-leather case that contains each piece in the set is really pretty. It has a brass locking mechanism on the front behind the handle. You will also find an embossed monogram on the top of the case that reads "A.M."
This fabulously elegant set will look down right glamorous on your dressing table or in a powder room.
