No doubt, this hand mirror and brush set is one of the more unusual vanity sets, coming from the Rosenthal Factory of finer porcelains, ca. late 1800's.

This vanity set is particularly unique, in that, it exhibits a stylized hand painted iris floral display, a type of art work that is not seen often, certainly not on hand mirrors.

The Rosenthal Porcelain Factory is a well respected company that created some of the most exceptional and desirable hand painted pieces of the late 1800's. The name Rosenthal was, and continues to be, synonymous with sophistication and high standards. This vanity hand mirror and brush set is a perfect example of why they led in the production of finer hand painted porcelains. The all-over and abundant hand painted decorative artwork makes this set especially appealing and attractive. The stylized irises and intense use of gold gilt detailing will make this set one that will likely not be found again. The porcelain backs suffer no damages, I don't even see any wear to the paint.  My photos are very good and show exactly what you should expect to receive, there are no disappointments with this set, it is totally amazing.

When I acquired this set, the existing mirror was not the original and it did not have a beveled edge so I replaced it with a beveled mirror that is very much like the original, all clear and perfect, you will be pleased. During this process, it allowed me to see the backside of the porcelain and to my delight, there was the Rosenthal Bavarian back stamp, used during the late 1800's. It's always wonderful to find these sets marked, many were not. I have cleaned and polished both pieces, as best as I could, making sure not to remove any of the gold wash remaining on the German silver handles and rims. The outer rims are signed G. Silver, as shown. There is some light wear and fading of the gold wash but overall it is still maintaining plenty of gold gilt and they look a little nicer than my photos, more uniform in tone than what would show. Overall, the condition of this set is in superb, sound, antique condition and has plenty of life, glamour and distinctive appeal going for it.


I'm showing you a lot of photos so you can judge this set as.... OH SO worthy. The natural bristles on the hair brush do show some normal aging and loss, after all, they are over 100 years old. Even though they still look good, I advertise them for decorative use only. The hairbrush is an attractive accent piece to the hand mirror, I love it. The handles and rims are a classic in Victorian design and I do believe that they were made in France. I have sold many of these sets through the decades, this style of embossed Victorian hardware was well recognized as French in origin. The handles and rims are in excellent condition, hard to notice even a small dent. Nothing typical about this set but for it's size, it measures the standard 9 inches in length with a 5 inch viewing surface and the brush is proportionately a little smaller.  This exclusive antique hand painted porcelain backed Rosenthal mirror and  brush set offers a fabulous form of artwork that will not be seen again any time soon. Please review all the photos closely and determine that you can love this set and it can add grace and distinction to your vanity. Or perhaps you would prefer to gift it to that extra special someone.
