This darling vintage vanity set will look sensational on your dressing table or in a powder room.

Or, use these little containers to hold any number of "toss in" items like change or hair pins. You name it, they make for great retro holders.

Dating from the 1930s, the set is a classic retro and elegant look and style, characterized by a marbled finish in mossy-green.

Each piece in the set is made of a rarely-seen type of celluloid called Acwalite (sometimes called "French Ivory").

The material is often mistaken for Bakelite as they share several aesthetic similarities.

All three pieces in the set feature a cast-in mark on the underside which reads "Acwalite" while the largest piece and small round jar include an additional mark underneath reading "Ambassador".

The largest piece in the set is the ideal shape and size for a bar of soap.

The base is a rich translucent amber color while the lid features an incredible marbled green finish with an elegant beveled and stylishly scalloped edge.

One of the smaller container features a similarly decorated lid, though it round instead of oblong.

This container has a heavier, more substantial base though it has the same rich golden color as the other pieces.

A cast-in mark on the base reads "S1" (likely the style number).

The final jar has an eye-shaped lid with the same beautiful green finish.

Each piece in the shows some minor, expected wear and a few flea-bite scratches here and there, though we are thrilled to say that the set remains in good vintage condition overall.

This beautiful, rare set will look absolutely dazzling in your collection.
