French Bronze Enamel Guilloche Dresser Set

rosette Bronze Doré Pink Enamel Guilloche Vanity Set with Hand-Painted Portraits on Ivory

This is a beautiful enamel guilloche vanity set with hand-painted portraits on ivory beneath glass insets. Surrounded with pink enamel guilloche borders and set in rich filigreed French bronze doré frames. The portraits are of three different women and are beautifully done. The ornate openwork handles are superbly done and the mirror has an openwork ribbon bow at the top.  The set consists of a beautifully shaped beveled mirror, hairbrush, and satin-lined jewelry casket.  Although the paintings appear to be signed, none of the signatures are distinguishable.  And although I cannot find the French stamp on the pieces, I am sure it originated from France as it is made like others I have had over the years and I purchased it as such.  Condition of the enameling and paintings is excellent.  The mirror is clear and in very good condition with only one area at the upper left where silver is missing but the mirror is 95% intact.  The mirror measures 4" wide x 12" long. Hairbrush measures 2-1/2" wide x 9" long.  Jewelry casket 5-1/2" x 4" x 2-1/2" high.

Sterling Silver Enamel Guilloche Dresser Set

rosette Sterling Silver Pink Enamel Guilloche Dresser Set in Original Case, S L & S Ltd, Birmingham, 1932

Here is a delightful vanity set with 6 pieces in original cream silk and velvet lined fitted case.  It is all sterling silver, hallmarked 1932 Birmingham and S L & S Ld. and a luscious shade of candy pink enamel guilloche.  The hallmark stands for S. (Samuel) Lesser & Sons Ltd.  The mark was started in 1913 and the date stamp on this dates it to 1932.  The set consists of two hairbrushes and two clothes brushes all with natural bristles, a beveled mirror, and a faux tortie comb.  Each piece bears matching hallmarks.  The beveled mirror is perfectly clear and has no foxing or silver loss at all.  All of the enamel guilloche is in excellent condition with the exception of one section right along the handle edge on one of the brushes where a wee bit is missing (see pics).  The mirror measures 9-3/4" long x approximately 4-3/4" diameter.  The hairbrushes each measure 8-7/8" x 2-1/2" at widest point.  The clothes brushes each measure 5-1/2" x 1-3/8" at widest point.  The comb measures 7-3/8" long x 1-5/8".  The case is 13-1/2" x 11-7/8" x 2-3/4".  Also, one of the gold case clasps has a pin replaced but working fine.

Baccarat Empire Vanity Set

rosette Exquisite French Baccarat Crystal Gilded Vanity Set in "Empire" Design

Stunning 4-pc. (plus lids) vanity set made by the prestigious French crystal company Baccarat.  This set is done in gold gilt in the discontinued "Empire" design which is quite exquisite in its own right. I have not been able to determine when this was discontinued but I believe this set dates from the 1920's or 30's.  Set consists of covered powder jar, perfume atomizer, and two bottles for perfume and cologne (difference in stoppers helps to identify contents).  Each piece is signed on the bottom.  The pieces are all panel cut and polished and the design is repeated in alternating panels all the way around the bottle and on the lid and base of the powder jar.  Perfume atomizer is hardened and does not work but is original. It is pretty much perfect with no discernible damage of any kind (in fact, the only apology is the teeniest of fleabites on the base of one stopper too small to even photograph).  Measurements of the pieces are as follows:

Perfume Bottle Bases are 5-1/2" high x 3-1/2" diameter.  Stoppers add another 2" - 2-1/8" more.
Perfume Atomizer:  4-7/8" high x 2-3/4" diameter.
Powder Jar: 3-1/4" diameter x 3-3/4" high.

Gold gilt is all in perfect condition with no visible wear anywhere.  Bases are also gold gilt.  These pieces are extremely heavy lead crystal and the weight of all four pieces is 7 lbs. 12 oz.!

Black Amethyst Vanity Set

rosette Black Amethyst 3-Pc. Vanity Set with Perfume, Trinket Jar and Dresser Tray with Gold Gilt Trim

Absolutely gorgeous is this wonderful 3-pc. black amethyst vanity set with gold gilt trim on all the pieces. All of the items are panel cut with polished bottoms and the gold gilt is applied over an etched relief classic design.  The stopper of the perfume and the lid on the trinket jar have facet-cut tops and all pieces have polished bottoms.  The quality is exquisite and is obviously one of the elegant glassware companies of the early 1900's.  Other than very very minor little nips here or there (too small to photograph), the set was in excellent condition until I inadvertently dropped something on the edge of the dresser tray causing a chip which I reglued back on but because of this, I am basically including that piece free of charge and only pricing it based on the other two pieces.  The color appears black but when held to light it reflects a deep amethyst color (see photograph of this).  The tray measures 8-5/8" long x almost 3" across x 1-3/4" high.  Perfume is 2-1/2" diameter x 6-1/4" high.  Trinket jar is 3" diameter x 5" high. The set is quite heavy.

Antoinette Vanity Set

rosette Rare "Antoinette" 3-Pc. Vanity Set Featuring Figural Colonial Ladies in Hoop Skirts -- Puff Box and Pair of Matching Perfumes

This is a very rare 3-pc. vanity set with full-figured colonial ladies ... their upper bodies are of frosted glass while the bottom halves which make up their full skirts are done in clear PINK glass.  I had a really hard time capturing the true pink color ... my photos look more peach or orange tinted when in reality they are a true pink and MUCH prettier than these pics show.  I do not know who made the set and cannot find out much about them ... they are pictured in Bedroom & Bathroom Glassware of the Depression Years on page 144. This set is in excellent condition and still has traces of the black eye paint which even the book's pictures are missing most.  The puff box measures 4" diameter x 4" high.  The perfumes are each 2-7/8" diameter at the bottoms x 4-3/4" high.

French Bronze Enamel Guilloche Vanity Set

rosette French Bronze 11-Pc. Vanity Set with Figural Vignettes in Teal Blue Enamel Guilloche - Artist Signed!

This is by far one of the most beautiful and elegant vanity sets I have ever owned and it has been a highlight of my collection for over 10 years now.  The color is an extraordinary shade of teal done in enamel guilloche with a portrait of a lady signed by A. Heuze on each of the pieces.  The perfume bottles have the portrait on the front and oval panels of teal enamel guilloche on the other three sides.  The perfume bottles are polished on all sides and have a polished pontil bottom.  The stoppers are cut crystal.  The powder jar has a glass liner with a large swansdown puff.  The hand mirror is very clear and has a nicely beveled edge.  As for condition, there is a small flake on the rim of one perfume bottle.  The enamel guilloche is in perfect shape with the only exceptions being some stress lines on the hairbrush and mirror and a small chip on the handle of the button hook. The mirror inside the lid of the powder jar has quite a bit of foxing.  Other than that it is in extraordinary condition for its age.  Pieces are marked "France" and the portraits are artist signed.  Below are the measurements of each piece:

Mirror:  4-3/8" x 5-5/8" (mirror portion) x 14" long overall
Perfume Bottles:  2-1/2" square x 7-5/8" high
Powder Jar: 4" diameter x 2-1/4" high.

French Bronze Enamel Guilloche Vanity Set

rosette French Bronze Enamel Guilloche Vanity Set with Artist-Signed Hand-Painted Portraits on Ivory

This is a beautiful enamel guilloche vanity set with hand-painted portraits on ivory beneath glass insets. Surrounded with lilac enamel guilloche borders and set in ornate French bronze mountings. The portraits are both beautifully done and the one on the mirror is signed. When I purchased this set, I bought it as a matching set but after looking at it, I am uncertain of that. Although the color is identical and the pieces are both marked France, there are subtle differences in the designs in the bronze. And the fact that the paintings are of different women makes me suspicious. Therefore, I would be willing to separate the pieces but will offer the set for a slightly lower price. The mirror is beveled and is in excellent usable condition. The powder jar has its glass liner and is also in excellent condition with the only thing worth mentioning is a tiny hairline in the glass coating of the enamel on the lid. It is only visible when looking at it from the side, not straight on and wouldn't show in pictures. The lid does not snap down all the way and I do not want to force it but it does close enough for using. I have taken many pictures so please look at them all. The mirror measures 5-5/8" wide x 7-1/2" but with handle it is a bit over 16" long. Powder box is 5-3/8" diameter x 2-3/4" high.

Note:  Mirror has been sold.

The comb is a (faux?) tortoise in excellent condition as is the nail file.  Both pieces nest inside a moire silk case with snap closure. The only mark is "Sterling" on both sides of the comb, so the maker is unknown.  Comb measures 4-1/2" x 1-3/8"; nail file is also 4-1/2". Case is 5-1/4" x 1-7/8".

Evans Enamel Guilloche Set

rosette 24 Kt. Gold Finish 3-Pc. Evans Hand-Painted Enamel Guilloche Cloisonne Vanity Set with Dresser Box, Compact and Locket

This 3-pc. vanity set by Evans dates from the late 40's or 50's and consists of a wood lined dresser box, compact and matching locket. The set is unused and still retains all of the original labels and inserts ... easier to just look at all the pics than for me to describe. Enameling on box and locket are excellent ... there is a pinkish spot on the top border of the box probably from lipstick or something that had rested on it in a drawer. There are smallish chips on two corners of the compact. Price for the set is based on this condition ... if the enameling on the compact was perfect, it would be worth twice this much. Box measures 4-3/8" x 3-1/8" x 1-1/2" 'high. Compact is 2-5/8" square. Locket is 1-1/4" square.

Peach Enamel Guilloche Baby Set

rosette Pastel Peach Enamel Guilloche Baby Set in Presentation Case

Here is a very cute little baby gift set in pale peach enamel guilloche. The set is in its original velvet lined presentation case and consists of a beveled mirror, tiny comb and matching brush. I would date this to the turn of the century (1900's) and it does show use. The mirror is beveled and is in excellent clear condition with a rope twist retainer. The enameling on the mirror has a tiny chip on one side visible in pics. The little brush has a few chips in the white enamel border, again visible in pics. The enameling on the little comb is pretty good with no real noticeable damage. The metal on the comb shows some pitting but not too bad. All in all this is a very presentable little set for display or use. The bristles are natural and the comb may be bone or ivory ... I can't be sure but it looks to have a faint graining pattern ... I will try to test this. The original box is in excellent condition. No maker's mark that I can find. Box measures 5-1/2" x 5-1/2" x 1-3/4" deep with brass closure. Mirror is roughly 2-1/4" x 1-3/4"; brush is 3" long and comb is 3-1/4" long.

Sterling Silver Enamel Guilloche Manicure Set

rosette Sterling Silver Hand-Painted Enamel Guilloche Manicure Set Dated 1911 by Levi & Salaman, Birmingham, in Presentation Case

This is one of the finest manicure sets I have ever owned and I have had it in my personal collection for over a decade now. It is hallmarked from 1911 and was made by Levi & Salaman (read company information on the Compact Manufacturers page). The set consists of several hand-painted enamel guilloche on sterling silver pieces including two covered boxes (for rings or patches), a cuticle trimmer, nail file, and nail buffer.  There are two manicure scissors included, one which is marked Sheffield. Enameling is in mint condition with no apologies whatsoever. All sterling pieces are hallmarked. The only problem at all is the hinges on the back of the case have come detached.  The pieces are all there and the box holds together ... this could be fairly easily fixed and I will try to take care of it before selling.  I just never bothered with it since it closes fine.  The case is 9-1/2" long x 6" wide x 1-1/2" deep. The trinket boxes are approximately 1-1/2" diameter, the buffer is almost 4" long, and the two long tools are 6" long.  This is a stunningly beautiful set and one that I have had to think hard about parting with but it's time to allow someone else to enjoy it. Be sure to view all the pictures to fully appreciate this wonderful set.

Jeweled Celluloid Manicure Set

rosette Amethyst Jeweled Celluloid Manicure Set in Original Leather Pouch

This is a fabulous jeweled celluloid manicure set in original leather case containing 14 pieces (not counting the lids as separate).  The pieces are a peach celluloid with amethyst jewels set in deep pink designs. I tried counting the jewels and got around 160+ and of all those, only 8 are missing on various pieces throughout.  The only mark on it is on the leather case which is stamped Premier Genuine Leather inside the flap. The pieces consist of (from the top down):  tweezers, buffer, unsure, cuticle trimmer, nail file, manicure scissors, emery board case with emery board, cuticle pusher, button hook, celluloid hair ornament?, two covered rectangular boxes and two round trinket boxes. There is some warping to the pieces ... the emery board case is curled slightly at the end, the hair ornament is curved, and both the long boxes lids are bowed. I believe these could be easily flattened by warming them and weighting them but I have not tried that yet. Measures 8" x 5" when closed and 13-1/2" long when open.

Figural Enamel Guilloche Baby Set

rosette Sterling Silver Figural Hand-Painted Enamel Guilloche Baby Brush & Comb in Mirrored Presentation Box

Lovely little sterling silver baby brush and comb set in a faux(? ... might be real) snakeskin presentation box.  The brush is done in enamel guilloche with a pink stork hand-painted on the back.  The mirror in the fancy lid has a nice wide bevel but is beginning to lose silvering around the edges (pictures show this clearly).  Bristles are natural, probably boar.  This is one of the finest baby sets I have ever had and it has been in my collection for many years.  Perfect for a baby girl as the stork is pink but it would be great for any baby ... or adult!  It would be a lovely addition to any vanity as it is just so pretty.  It is marked Birmingham and I believe the year to be 1927.  Enameling is in excellent condition.  The comb is split inside the silver frame where one of the pins went through it but it stays in and is fine ... just needed to mention for accuracy.  The brush measures 3-1/4" x 2-1/4" , the comb measures 3-1/2", and the box measures 4-3/8" x 3-1/2" x 2-1/4" high.

Devon Ware Vanity Set

rosette 1912 Devon Ware "Lune" 8-Pc. Vanity Set by SF & Co, Stoke on Trent, England

Of all the vanity sets I have owned, this one has to be my absolute favorite!  Probably because the date on the bottom dates its manufacture to 1912, the year the Titanic embarked on its historic voyage.  I just love the colors and the designs on this.  It was made by S. Fielding & Company in Stoke-on-Trent, England.  The 8-pc. set consists of a large shaped tray, pair of candle holders, hatpin holder, hair receiver and covered powder jar (lids count as part of set).  Amazingly, ALL of the pieces are in excellent condition with no chips or cracks ... almost unheard of in a set of this size and age.  The only sign of age at all is the slight wear to the gold gilt edging, all clearly visible in the pictures above.  I believe "Lune" is the name of the design. Below are the measurements of each piece:

Tray:  16-3/4" long x 8-1/4" wide
Candle Holders:  6-1/2" high. Base is 3-7/8" diameter and top is 2" diameter
Hatpin Holder: 5" high. Base is 3-7/8" diameter and top is 2" diameter
Hair Receiver:  4" diameter x 3" high overall
Powder Jar: 4" diameter x 4" high overall

The full marks are on the tray, hatpin holder and powder jar.  The other pieces just have the number 0709.  Every time I look at this gorgeous set, I feel like I have stepped back in time to that graceful era.  It has been in my own collection for many years and now I am ready to pass it along to another lucky owner.

Figural Enamel Guilloche Dresser Set

rosette Figural Hand-Painted Serenade Enamel Guilloche Dresser Set

This spectacular dresser set is one of the finest I have owned. It consists of four pieces: large beveled mirror, hairbrush with natural bristles, covered crystal powder jar, and comb holder. Each piece is done in a pretty soft mint green color enamel guilloche with a hand-painted figural scene on the back (except the comb holder which has a scene but no figures). All of the enameling is in excellent condition with no chips or repairs whatsoever. At the very tip of the brush, there is a tiny hairline crack in the enamel. It blends in with the design and is so small it's really not even noticeable. The covered powder jar is made of the finest crystal with polished base and rim and is also in excellent condition with no chips. The hand mirror has a gorgeous beveled edge to the mirror that measures 3/8" wide. The metal frame is not sterling but it does tarnish ... the color is a goldish rose brass or vermeil coating. It is in excellent condition as well with a nice patina. The only mark I can find on the set is on the rim of the powder jar where it is stamped "Made in Germany". This is one of the nicest sets we've ever had and the pictures simply don't do it justice. The mirror measures 4-1/4" wide x 13-1/2" long. Brush measures 3" wide x 9-1/2" long. Powder jar is almost 5" diameter x 2-1/2" deep. Comb holder is 7-1/8" long x 3/4" high.

French Bronze Enamel Guilloche Dresser Set

rosette French Bronze Enamel Guilloche Vanity Set with Artist-Signed Hand-Painted Portraits on Ivory

This is a beautiful enamel guilloche vanity set with hand-painted portraits on ivory beneath glass insets. Surrounded with peach enamel guilloche borders and set in rich filigreed French bronze frames. The portraits all seem to be of the same woman in different gowns. The artist's signature, while on each piece, is very difficult to make out. The set consists of oval beveled mirror, case for powder box (glass jar missing), hairbrush and valet brush. Now for the bad news: both brushes are missing. So while the set is absolutely stunning for display, it is not functional. It may be fairly easy to replace the bristles from another set but I have never tried to do that as I only used it for my own display purposes. The mirror measures 4-1/2" wide x 12-1/2" long. Hairbrush measures 2-3/4" wide x 9" long. Valet brush is 2" wide x 7-1/2" long. Powder or jewelry casket case is 4" diameter x 2-1/2" high.

Carved Manicure Set

rosette Victorian Mother-of-Pearl Carved Manicure Set in Original Box

Velvet lined box holds 5 pieces, three of which are ornately carved (see detail pic below).  Dating from late 1800's, interior and pieces are in excellent condition (remnants of company name barely visible on silk inside lid).  Outside of case is richly embossed to resemble tooled leather.  There is some wear on very top which can probably be camouflaged with a light shoe polish ... will leave that up to the new owner :-)

French  Bronze Vanity Set

rosette French Bronze Vanity Set with Artist-Signed Hand-Painted Portraits on Ivory

This beautiful dresser set is done in faux enamel guilloche surrounds and hand-painted portraits on ivory centers.  The same young woman is featured in both mirror and brushin a similar pose but you can see the variations which show each to be individually painted.  The artist's signature can be seen on the mirror but I can't make out exactly what it says (Stohl?) ... see close-up pic.  Ornate filigreed handles and workmanship around the mirror and brush make this an extraordinary set.  Mirror is beveled and is in excellent condition.  Natural bristle brush is also in great shape.  Matching filigreed comb completes set.
