No question about it, this antique porcelain backed hand mirror and brush set is attributed to the French artisans from the region of Limoges, France.

I've handled enough of these hand mirror and brush sets over the decades to recognize a Limoges set when I see one, no doubt in my mind.

My photos are very good and show you exactly what you will receive. Most years, I am excited to acquire but only one hand painted set, so far this year, this is the second, what a treat. Don't ignore this set, it's really very pretty, with it's all over hand painted pink lavender large blossoms. The artwork is very well executed, in wonderful French form. The depth of color is soft and feminine and at the same time, strong and appealing. This mirror and brush set will make a statement on your vanity. I think it best to let my photos speak for me, just expect the set to look a tad bit better in person. All photos were taken without flash or overhead lighting so you can see the awesome colors most accurately.  This set is full of life with the floral arrangement on a bright white ground.

  

The outer rims are signed G. Silver (German Silver), as shown in the above photo. The metal handles and frames continue to maintain a good amount of gold wash. The hardware is strong and secure and I have cleaned and polished them to the best of my ability, being careful not to remove any of the gold gilt, this set is ready for your enjoyment and pleasure. The natural bristles on the hair brush are showing their age and although they are still nearly complete, they are advertized for decorative use only, as they are over 100 years old. The outer rims have a few small shallow and scattered dents but nothing naughty at all, nothing that stands out very much. The handles are strong and secure.

 

These Victorian embossed handles are a trademark of the French made sets and I am sure that the porcelain came from Limoges, France. These very special rims and handles are the prettiest, in my opinion, I have yet to have a buyer dispute their overall elegant French character. Both sides of each handle are embossed in this Victorian design, simply divine, really can't asked for anything nicer. The beveled mirror is perfectly clear and although it appears to be a replacement, it has a nice wide bevel, much like the original. This set measures 9 inches in length with a 5 inch viewing surface and the brush is proportionately a little smaller. If you like what you see in my photos, you will adore this extraordinary French Limoges hand painted mirror and brush vanity set, it awaits your approval and a special place on your vanity.
