Item specifics

Composition: Sterling Silver Type: Brushes & Grooming Sets
Maker: Mixed Lots Age: 1900-1940


An antique Sterling Silver Vanity set from a local estate.

We are pleased to present this antique Vanity set from a local estate for your consideration. You will receive the following:

Mirror. The Mirror is a large and heavy piece with an exquisite high-relief repousse floral design on the back. The circular portion holding the Mirror is 5-3/4 inches in diameter, with the glass measuring slightly over 5 inches in diameter. The length from the handle to the top of Mirror is 7-3/4 inches. This piece weighs a substantial 372 grams. It is marked STERLING with an unidentified maker's mark. There is a monogram on the back, but we are uncertain as to the letters.

The beveled glass in the Mirror is in good shape, with only a few light surface scratches, but will need to be resilvered. The Sterling Silver shows moderate surface wear, and there are a few bumped edges, more noticeable on the side with the glass. The side with the floral design doesn't show any bumps or dents, only some dried silver polish in the deeper areas. One edge of the ring that holds the glass in place seems to be raised above the adjacent surface and not properly seated, although it doesn't feel loose. We rate the overall condition of the Mirror as good to very good, and an excellent candidate for a full restoration.

Brush. The Brush has more of an abstract repousse art nouveau design and is marked Pearl where a monogram would normally appear. It measures 6-5/8 inches in length and 1-5/8 inches in width. The height is 1-3/4 inches which includes the handle and bristles. This piece weighs 65 grams. It is marked STERLING with no obvious maker mark.

One clump of bristles is missing, and one edge (on the bristle side) has a corner of the whitish material that separates the bristles missing (see picture and inset which shows the corner). The top (silver) side shows some bumps, especially at the center and around the edges, but still looks pretty good. We rate the overall condition of the Brush as good.

Powder Jar. The Powder Jar is cut glass, with ground base, and sterling silver lid. The glass has ridges running along the outside surface, with cuts running horizontally along the top edge of the vertical ridges, giving a lot of character to the piece. It measures 2-3/16 inches in height and 2-5/8 inches in diameter at the widest point. It weighs 151 grams, with the sterling lid weighing 10 grams by itself. The lid is marked STERLING with no maker's mark.

The lid has some bumps, especially around the edge, and there are some discolored areas. The glass has some flea bites visible with a magnifying glass, but no defects obvious to the naked eye. The ground bottom has scattered fine scratches. There are no chips or cracks to the glass. We rate the overall condition of the Powder Jar as very good.

This is a charming antique vanity set with an impressive looking Mirror. It would make a wonderful addition to any collection!
