This is simply a charming antique porcelain backed hand mirror and brush set, a refined and distinguished vanity ensemble for your Victorian boudoir.

 

These very special sets were produced during the late 1800's to the early 1900's and this set has all the personality and allure that any woman can appreciate.

My photos are expressing the true nature of this set with it's the crisp color palette, however, expect it to look much nicer in person. The luscious pink burgundy roses are accompanied by white apple blossoms and excellent multi green and gray shadings. The rarer feature of this dresser set is the unique and vibrantly colorful iridescent outer border. This wonderful attribute is well represented in my photos and it's depth of color is not exaggerated at all. The finer quality transfer decorated rose bouquet is edged with gold gilt and displays on a dome shaped porcelain disc. The hair brush is a perfect match to the hand mirror. The artwork is gleaming with life and passion, as only roses can convey with the paint intact, no complaints with the artwork. The porcelain is in excellent undamaged condition, it does have a couple of common dimples found in antique porcelain and please excuse any light reflections. These pieces suffer no cracks, chips, hairlines or other issues, I don't even see much of a scratch.

  

The outer metal rims and handles are bright, they have been slightly and gently cleaned and polished to the best of my ability. The metal appears as brass and both pieces maintain much of their original gold wash, they are quite lovely. There are very few, if any dents, a couple small ones that I see upon closer inspection, nothing significant or unsightly, barely noticeable. The Art Nouveau styled handles are secure and strong, embossed with Art Nouveau florals and leaves.

 

The natural bristles on the brush are set in a wood base and although they appear fairly new, the brush is advertised for decorative use only. Bristles are in very good condition and nearly all intact, only one empty hole. The original beveled mirror is nearly pristine, they really can't get much better than this for over 100 years old. The  hand mirror measures approx. 9 in length, it has a 5 inch viewing surface and the brush is proportionately a little smaller.  I see a patent date on the hand mirror, I believe it reads June 13, 1905. Please don't hesitate if you love this set, I have been having a very difficult time finding hand mirrors with brushes that are as delightful as these roses. This is a stunning, well kept antique Art Nouveau era, hand mirror brush set and it looks wonderful in person.
