This rather irreplaceable porcelain backed hand mirror and brush set has an artistic rendering with a bit of a mythical or imaginary depiction. The scene is of a beautiful winged woman with long exotic blondish hair, adorned with a wreath of flowers. She is dressed in a light weight semi-sheer long dress that has an additional floral garland around her waist. She is sitting rather confidently poised at the edge of a lofty cliff with her bare feet hanging down. The artwork is wonderful and the overall shadings are delightful. This particular presentation is superbly executed and the set is in overall excellent condition, without damage or significant wear.

As you can see there is a lot of extra fancy detail on this set with raised white dots encircling the scene, as well as exquisite gold gilt leaves and lush green borders. Although the central scene has a glazed porcelain finish, the green borders are more of a matte finish, offering lovely contrast to these awesome pieces. This additional artwork is also in extra nice condition, with very little in the form of wear, perhaps a tad bit on a few of the white dots but nothing that is straight away noticeable.  The gold gilded leaves are absolutely divine and all together, this set is just about one of the more outstanding sets I've offered. I am showing you plenty of photos, all of which express the true nature and condition of this set.


The brass outer rims have a deep scalloped edge and a softer, finer inner scalloped border. The art Nouveau styled handles are deeply embossed and all aspects of the metal are in sound, secure and dent free condition, can't really get much nicer than this. I did gently polish this set for you, it is currently in glowing condition, resembling gold gilt. The natural bristles on the hair brush are in really good condition for their age, they are firm and appear like they are usable but I advertize them for decorative use only since they are well over 100 years old. The original beveled mirror was unusable, so I replaced it with a quality, perfect beveled mirror much like the original. This uncommon antique vanity hand mirror and brush set measures the standard size. The hand mirror is approx. 91/4 inches in length and has a 5 inch viewing surface, the hair brush is proportionately a little smaller. I truly believe this antique Art Nouveau vanity hand mirror and brush set will make a marvelous addition to any collection and add a depth of diversity that is often difficult to find. Please examine my photos closely and determine that this very special set deserves to be amongst your treasures.
