Hansel and Gretel Brushes

rosette Figural Fairytale "Hansel and Gretel" German Porcelain Half-Doll His & Hers Clothes Brushes (Whisk Brooms) with One Original Box New Listing!

I have had this adorable set of half-doll porcelain clothes brushes in my collection since 2006.  I have never before seen these in fairy tale characters before and in full figures as well -- not the half figures as it typically found in these.  This set features Hansel and Gretel and have their original whisk brooms attached.  When I bought them, there was only one box -- the one for Hansel -- and both were stored inside it with the lid fitting about 2/3 of the way on (see photos).  As for condition, Gretel is perfect with no wear or damage whatsoever.  Hansel, regrettably, has been broken and repaired years ago and not a great job.  It could probably be redone better but I have left it alone. From some angles, it is not noticeable at all while from others, it is more obvious.  When viewed from the front, it is pretty much indiscernable.  I bought the set regardless of this because of its rarity.  And I would rather have a repaired Hansel than have him missing altogether.  They make a beautiful display!  The brushes are also different colors.  Gretel is pink (more faded on the front side than the back) which would be appropriate for the lady's brush.  This could probably be removed and turned around if desired but again, I have left it as found. Both dolls are marked Germany on the lower backs.  The doll portions measure 4-1/4" high; overall height is 8".  Be sure to look at all the photos to see the detail on these two beauties!

Purse Compact Mirror

rosette Ladybug Folding Compact Mirror with Jeweled Flowers on Both Sides

In all my years of collecting, I have never come across another item like this one. I am not even sure what it is made of but it is reminiscent to me of the kind of craftsmanship seen on old caliopes on circa 1900 carousels.  It is pillow shaped and has beautiful molded flowers on both sides with tiny jewels in the centers of the flowers.  One side has a ladybug in flight and the other side has a ladybug on a flower petal.  The piece is set in what appears to be a bronze type casing with a tiny bow shaped clasp which snaps firmly shut.  Inside the design is repeated on one side and a mirror is on the other.  The bronze casing is also embossed in a very pretty design.  The main color of the background is a cream with a blush shading on one side which is a bit darker on the front side than the back.  Overall it is in excellent condition.  It measures 2-1/4" square x 1-1/2" deep at highest points.  Be sure to look at all the photos of this unique piece.

Hair Receiver

rosette RARE His & Hers Nippon Hair Receiver and Matching Shaving Mug with AIRPLANE in Hand-Painted Scene

This beautiful matching His & Hers vanity set consists of a hair receiver and shaving mug. Both pieces feature a pilot in an early airplane flying over a tranquil winding river in a treed landscape ... so pretty!  The planes and the clouds have lots of lavender and purple shades and the trees are green and gold.  There is an almost Egyptian design around the base ... since King Tut's tomb was discovered the next year, I am wondering if the excavations going on in Egypt might have had some bearing on this.  Both pieces are in excellent condition and both bear the Nippon mark which was used from 1891 - 1921.  Hair Receiver measures 4" x 2-1/2" high; Shaving Mug measures 3-7/8" diameter at top x 3-5/8" tall.

Plateau Mirror

rosette Reed & Barton "King Francis" Elegant Silverplate Footed Mirrored Plateau

Here is a stunning piece to add a touch of elegance to any vanity ... made by Reed & Barton, it is a gorgeous mirrored plateau with a wide skirted base with ornate acanthus leaves and flower buds.  The mirror is in excellent condition and the silverplate is also very, very good with only some minor discolorations here and there.  Overall superb ... it is a very impressive piece!.  The base has three ball feet.  When we purchased it, there was actually a wire wrapped between two of the feet and it was being used to hang on a wall as a wall mirror so this is another option for use.  It is signed "Reed & Barton 1666 King Francis" on the bottom edge.  It measures 15" diameter at the outside edge; the mirror portion is 10-1/2" diameter.  It stands 1-1/4" high.

Portrait Mirror

rosette French Miniature Figural Nude Winged Goddess Gilt Mirror with Hand-Painted Portrait - Artist Signed!

This spectacular miniature hand mirror is perfect for stashing in a travel bag or purse although it is really rather too nice for such use!  The beautiful mirror features a hand-painted beauty on the front with foliate leaves adorning her hair and dress which sparkle in the light.  It is artist signed M Carus on the right side.  The painting is in excellent condition with no chips or damage whatsoever.  The handle of the mirror features a nude winged goddess (Nike?) on both sides.  The mirror is beveled and has some foxing from age but it totally usable as it is.  The base metal is made to look like bronze but I believe it is either brass or spelter with a gilt coating.  Although it appears to be French, I cannot find any marks to confirm it but it was sold to me as such by a reputable auction house.  Please view all the pictures to see how exquisite this piece truly is!  Measures 2" wide x 6-3/4" overall.  Mirror portion itself is 2" x 2-1/2".

Sterling Silver Enamel Guilloche Cigarette Holder

rosette Sterling Silver Enamel Guilloche Mechanical Pencil for Chatelaine with Hand-Painted Roses

Chatelaines were elegant ways for women to carry utilitarian pieces and this is an exceptionally pretty example that was made for a very fancy chatelaine. It is very tiny ... measures only 3-1//4" long counting the little hanging ring and is less than 1/4" diameter. The pencil is done in a very pretty cornflower blue enamel guilloche with two hand-painted pink roses. I am not exactly sure how the lead is inserted but there is a lead in there at present. It is marked Sterling and Germany on the tip.  Condition is very good ... there is a tiny area of roughness right at the tip edge that is visible in the pictures.

Harebell Combination Perfume Bell and Compact

rosette RARE Silverplate "The Harebell" Combination Pefume Bell and Powder Compact Circa 1873 ... Exquisite!

This is one of the most unique vanity items I have ever run across ... it is a combination perfume dispenser/compact/trinket tray. It was made by BBs and was called "The Harebell" ... see photos for the insignia on the base. The bell at the top has a little "clapper" at the bottom which unscrews ... when the bell is filled with perfume and then inverted, you simply push upward on the little clapper and it dispenses a drop of perfume at a time. I have never seen anything so clever! The trinket tray at the bottom is actually concealing a hidden compact beneath which opens from the back so that the mirror will be lying down facing you so you can apply your powder (or patch if you had these in the tray back in the day). The original puff is still inside. This is such a stunning piece that would look gorgeous on a vanity today! All hallmarked on the bottom (see pics), it has a patent applied for number but I could not locate it so I don't believe it was ever fulfilled. Based on the date of the number, it would date from the 1870's if it had gone through. The same number can be found on the clapper of the bell. Silverplate is electroplated nickel silver. Measures 2-3/8" diameter at the base x 5-1/2" tall.

This is a truly gorgeous covered vanity tray made in 1926 by Cambridge ... I have seen it before with plain tops but this one is exquisitely etched and gilded in gold ... it is truly beautiful! The lid lifts off to reveal a compartmented interior with a powder in the center, rouge pot on one side, and lipstick and eyebrow pencil slots on the other. Referenced in the "Bedroom & Bathroom Glassware of the Depression Years", it states " ... is 4-3/4" wide and 8-1/2" long and was introduced by the Cambridge Glass Company in 1926." The bottom is marked on the underside "PAT. APPL'D FOR". This is a substantial piece and weighs over 2 lbs. ... it is in excellent condition with some minor age appropriate wear to the gold on the handle and edge and one very small fleabite on the INSIDE rim of the lid. This is a rare and fantastic piece!

Cameo Hatpin Holder

rosette Schafer & Vater Cameo Figural Jasperware Hatpin Holder

This is a lovely hatpin holder made in Germany by Schafer & Vater circa 1900.  The color is a soft pink with a wedgwood blue cameo of a different woman on either side.  The blue is also a softer muted shade which gives the entire piece a truly antique feel (which of course it is being over 100 years old!).  The top of the piece has 7 holes for hat pins.  As for condition, there are two factory flaws which bear mentioning but neither has any impact on its beauty or its functionality.  The bottom of the piece has a kiln split which only goes through in one teeny pin hole that you can only see if you put your eye up to one of the holes and hold it up to a bright light.  You cannot see through it otherwise and the split does not go through.  Also factory is an air bubble miss on the hair of the woman on the back of the holder.  Both of these issues are well pictured and will look significantly larger and worse in my photos than they do in person.  There is no damage whatsoever to the body of the piece elsewhere.  This is a beautiful item and would be a great addition to any hatpin holder collection.  Measures almost 4" across at base x 2-1/2" wide at the center front/back x 5" high.

Portrait Brush

rosette French Bronze Peach Enamel Guilloche Brush with Hand-Painted Portrait on Ivory

I am not sure who the lovely young woman is who was immortalized on this French bronze brush, but she was hand-painted on a thin sheet of ivory and signed by the artist whose name has faded with time and is not legible any longer. The workmanship on this lovely brush is superb as most of the French bronze pieces are. The portrait is set in a framed oval which is separate from the guilloche. And the enamel guilloche is a lovely shade of pale orange or peach with a moire pattern in the guilloche. At the top of the brush is an openwork ornate ribbon bow with roses above. The handle is also done in openwork on both sides and is stamped France on the very tip. The natural bristles in the brush are all intact and in good condition. This is a beautiful piece in excellent condition. Measures 12" long from tip to tip; brush portion is 5-1/2" x 3" not counting the ornate topper.

I have had this wonderful little fellow in my collection for years ... I always debated putting a puff in the dish but didn't want to take away from the buttons visible on his tummy. I would date this piece from the early 1900's as it is marked for the Sitzendorf Porcelain Manufactory of Germany. It is all snowy white with black hand-painted trim and nicely detailed face, right down to the exprssive eyebrows and forehead curl. It is in excellent condition with only some minor wear to the black paint ... all in all a great piece! Measures approx. 4-1/2" long x 3-1/4" wide x 2-1/2" high.

Enameled Chatelaine

rosette Rare Champleve' Enameled Chatelaine

Very old and very beautiful, this champleve enameled chatelaine has such pretty feminine colors. Always a huge fan of pinks and blues when used together, this one truly speaks to my heart. I cannot pinpoint the exact age but my guess is 1870's or 80's. It was obviously much used and much loved as it has what appearsto me to be very early attempts to replace missing enamel on the mirror piece (close-up photos will clearly show this but at a glance, you will not notice it at all). The base metal is probably brass or an alloy of brass. It has 3 pieces attached to it: a very old wooden pencil with pretty holder which all appears to be original, a covered mirror, and a tiny button hook which folds closed. Chatelaines were the precursors of purses and gave a lady a way to carry items easily and decoratively. This one would have been a dressy one to wear out on an evening. Be sure to see all the photos ... there are many!

The chatelaine measures almost 7-1/2" long to the bottom of the mirror.  Each piece measures as follows:

Clasp: 1-3/8" x 1-3/4" (clip is longer)
Mirror:  1-1/2" x 2"
Pencil: 2-7/8"
Button Hook: 3/4" wide x 1-3/8" long when closed, 2" long when open

Art Nouveau Chatelaine

rosette Lovely Art Nouveau Repousse' Chatelaine

This is a very pretty chatelaine done in Art Nouveau repousse designs and is topped with a 3-dimensional openwork clasp. I am not sure what the metal is ... it is rather light weight but I don't think it is aluminum. Perhaps an alloy of some kind but there are hints of copper in the color so I am not sure. In any event, the chatelaine consists of 3 chains with detachable links at the bottom whereby the owner could change the accessories depending on the occasion. The 3 items that are on the chatelaine now were obviously meant to be worn on an evening out as there is a retractable pencil holder, a tablet with 3 celluloid or ivory sheets to write on, and a covered mirror. It is in excellent condition with the only damage being a tip of one of the tablet pages is missing (less than 1/4"). I would date this to the 1890's. Be sure to see all the photos.

The chatelaine measures almost 8-1/2" long to the bottom of the tablet.  Each piece measures as follows:

Clasp: 1-7/8" x 1-3/4" (clip is longer)
Tablet:  2-1/8" x 1-7/8"
Pencil Holder: 2-3/8" x 1/4" diameter

Jeweled Portrait Mirror

rosette Jeweled Cut Glass Hand-Painted Chatelaine Portrait Mirror - Artist Signed

This is one of the finest chatelaine mirrors I have ever owned ... it not only has a beautiful hand-painted portrait of a lovely young woman, the reverse side has the most exquisite cut and beveled glass mirror surrounded by turquoise jewels. You just have to look at the pictures (which don't do it justice). The painting is done on porcelain and the artist has signed it but I cannot make out the name. The close-up photo will show it as clearly as I can see it. There is a tiny ring at the bottom of the handle for attaching to a chatelaine. Now for the mirror itself ... it is beveled and the edge of the bevel is cut in tiny scallops all the way around which makes it sparkle like a jewel. And there are jewels -- turquoise ones -- set around it in tiny bezels. There are 8 of them around the mirror and one more in the handle. The metal itself is either brass or bronze ... I am not an expert in this but it does have patination and is quite lovely in its own right. Again, the pictures will show this in greater detail than I can describe it. The mirror portion measures 1-3/4" wide x 2-1/4" high. The overall length of the mirror is 5-1/4" from the tip to the bottom of the ring. There are little decorative embellishments that protrude from the sides and top of the mirror (again, see pics).

Cherubs Mirror

rosette Delightful Sterling Silver Enamel Guilloche Figural Travel Size Beveled Mirror "Target of Love" by Boucher

This is without a doubt the sweetest little mirror I have ever owned and it pains me to part with it but it is time to move along for someone else to enjoy. The back of the mirror is a beautiful light blue enamel guilloche with white enamel border. There is a vignette in the center with a white border around it (note the guilloche design in that) that features a group of three cherubs frolicking in the clouds around a tiny red heart in the middle. This scene is an adaptation of the original painting titled "Target of Love" done by Francois Boucher in 1758. The details are exquisite! The reverse side has the widest beveled mirror I have seen for one this small ... the mirror itself is only 1-5/8" across and the bevels are 5/8" of that! And the mirror is in excellent crystal clear condition. Enameling is also in excellent condition with only one teeny little fracture at the bottom left of the front edge which only shows up when held a certain way ... I actually did not see it until the pictures. Hallmarks read 935 and a crown and a letter M but I cannot identify these marks ... they are not English and I can't find a U.S. maker that looks like these. If you know, please share the info with me and I will publish it here. Measures 7" long x 1-5/8" across.

rosette Child's Figural Mirror & Brush Set

The figures on this adorable little child's set look like children playing dress-up to me.  The scenes are done on porcleain and both are the same with only subtle variances. The metal surrounds are not sterling or even brass but rather a white metal base with gold wash over them which has worn on the high points. The brush is natural bristles and the mirror is nicely beveled.  It is in very good condition with a few age streaks at the top and bottom edges under the bevel but the center portion is clear and good. This is a very cute set that was meant for a child and shows that it was dearly loved by one. Mirror measures just over 6" long and 3-1/4" diameter at top. Brush is 5-3/4" long x 1-3/8" wide.

Portrait Mirror

rosette French Bronze Child's or Travel Mirror with Hand-Painted Portrait Signed "Paulin"

Believed to be a young Marie Antoinette, this beautiful little mirror appears to be French bronze (not marked). The portrait is signed Paulin and is most likely done on ivory although I have not taken it apart to verify this ... I don't want to bend the clips as they could break so I am going by my experience with such items. The mirror is quite heavy for its size and very ornate. The actual mirror is beveled but has extensive silver loss around the edges that is readily visible in the pictures; however, the center portion and all else that is not loss is clear and excellent for viewing. Original patina ... I do not polish these as the patination adds to its value. There is a tiny ring on the bottom to hang ig or even attach it to a chatelaine if such were the owner's desire ... I am not really certain of its purpose. Measures 8" long from tip to tip; round mirror portion is 3-3/8" 'diameter; mirror itself is 2-5/8" diameter. Mirror portion is 1/2" deep.

rosette F & B Sterling Silver Enamel Guilloche Lipstick with Hand-Painted Flower Basket and Pearl Jeweled Button

This is one of my favorite lipsticks and I have had it in my collection for several years now.  Made by F & B, it is sterling silver featuring a hand-painted basket of flowers topped with a pretty pink ribbon bow.  The center is in white to accentuate the design while the outer perimeter is turquoise. And finishing it off is a lovely little pearl jewel in the button to pull out the lipstick.  The lipstick measures 2-1/8" long and is in very good condition with only two miniscule flakes at the very bottom edge (you have to look hard but both are visible in the pics, one on each side). First time offered and at my cost! (See accompanying perfume on Milady's Vanity Perfumes).

rosette Snowy White Enamel Guilloche Lipstick with Hand-Painted Flowers

Here is another lipstick that I have had in my collection for several years.  This one is not marked sterling but the silver does tarnish as sterling and polishes up nicely (and it was sold to me as sterling so I assume it is).  The front side has a cascade of flowers while the back is solid white.  The lipstick measures just under 2" long and is in excellent condition with some lipstick still inside. First time offered and at my cost!.

Meux's Special Stout Etui/Compact

rosette Meux's Special Stout Etui / Compact - RARE ITEM!

This is a very favorite collectible that I have had for many years now ... it is a combination etui (fully loaded!) and compact in a novelty bottle-shaped container derived from the famous Meux's Brewery which was founded in London in 1764.  The mechanics of this are delightful ... the lid or cap is actually the thimble beneath which is a removable spindle which holds two thread spools.  One end of the spindle has a removable cap which reveals a compartment to hold needles (2 are still inside).  Now for the really fun part!  Turn it over and you will see yourself in the mirror on the bottom ... but that's not all.  The bottom portion is also removable and inside can be found a powder cake in the "cap" and tucked inside the bottle portion is the sweetest little puff you ever saw ... complete with tiny ring handle and ribbon remnants. I have never seen another like this anywhere ... it is truly a rare piece and a crossover collectible for sewing afficianados also.  Measures 1" diameter at base x almost 3" tall. Marked "Depose" on the neck ... English origin.

This is a beautiful Victorian tri-fold beveled mirror which can be hung or free-standing (has small feet).  There are two portraits of gorgeous women on the two outer mirrors ... be sure to see close-ups.  Each mirror has a very wide bevel -- 1/2" -- and they are in quite good condition for their age ... just some very small areas of foxing but still very usable.  The outermost portrait has significant crazing but the interior one is excellent.  The brass frame shows signs of age ...

Sterling Silver Enamel Guilloche Cigarette Holder

rosette Sterling Silver Enamel Guilloche Cigarette Holder Made in Austria

This is one of my favorite cigarette holders ... probably because I am such a fan of anything blue with pink and this fits the bill totally!  The stem of the piece is an early bakelite or celluloid and the tip is a snowy white enamel guilloche with pretty pink roses handpainted all around and a blue border at the very end.  This is done on sterling silver and it was made in Austria.  There is a hallmark for the manufacturer but I am unable to make it out or get a good enough picture of it. The enamel is all in perfect condition ... there is some wear to the mouthpiece end. I will try to polish this out with Novus.  Just a gorgeous piece and very striking in color!  Measures 4" long.

Sterling Silver Enamel Guilloche Cigarette Holder

rosette Teeny Tiny Sterling Silver Enamel Guilloche Mechanical Pencil for Chatelaine

Chatelaines were elegant ways for women to carry utilitarian pieces and this is an exceptionally pretty example that was made for a very fancy chatelaine. It is very tiny ... measures only 2-3/4" long not counting the little hanging ring and is only 3/16" diameter. The pencil is done in a very pretty aqua enamel guilloche with hand-painted pink roses throughout. I am not exactly sure how the lead is inserted as the tip seems to only turn back and forth for a short distance. I think possibly you load it from the tip and simply rotate it inward and outward to use it. Since there is no lead in it at present, I cannot be sure. There are marks on the ring but this piece is so tiny that I cannot make it out but I believe it says Sterling.  Excellent condition!
