It's been quite a long time since I've offered a similar hand mirror and brush set from the approx. 1920 era, detailed in the French style of Dore gilt gold bronzed metal.

Over the decades, I haven't had the opportunity to offer very many of these particular types of sets because so few meet the criteria I have established for my buying standards.

This set, however, is quite wonderful and although not looking entirely as if it was made yesterday, it is still so very worthy to be considered. This set will arrive in the French style of the 1920's sets, the bronzy metal appears to be overall gold gilded. Of course, the handles have a little gold gilt wear from general light usage but basically, it's really not bad at all, considering it's age I find it delightfully acceptable. The previous owner took good care of this set and did occasionally polish it so there is occasional light wear to the gold gilt, which appears like a shading of rose gold, all blending quite naturally.  There is still some age related darkening in the harder to polish areas but overall, it is in very nice condition, with no significant flaws to detract from this set. Any additional polishing will be left to the discretion of it's next owner.

There is an abundance of intricate metal work on the set, including heavily embossed designs, raised sculpted ribbon and floral overlays, fancy borders and butterflies positioned over floral garlands. The original beveled mirror is better than what is usually found, showing a good clear reflection along with some very minor aging seen when tipped to the light and a bit at the outer edge. This mirror still has a lot of life with excellent reflective qualities, it will serve you well and the viewing surface is 5 3/8 inches by 4 inches in width.  And, of course, the excellent array of bezel set emerald green jeweled stones adds a distinctive gracefulness to this set that goes unsurpassed. There are several sizes and shapes to include a large center 1/2 inch diameter stone, 3/8 inch ovals, 1/4 inch and 1/8 inch rounds. These multi faceted stones are in superior condition, having no cracks or chips, they are lovely. Naturally, this set has a lot of weight to it, this is not a flimsy set.

This very distinguishing hand mirror and brush set measures as follows: the hand mirror is 13 7/8 inches in length by 4 5/8 inches in width and the hair brush is 10 1/8 inches by 2 3/4 inches in width. I have taken the liberty of cleaning the natural brush bristles and even though they are in very nice condition for their age, I advertize these brushes for decorative use only. Although the hair brush may be used, I cannot guarantee that it will hold up to daily use, as the bristles are nearly 100 years old. If you are seeking a more detailed and intricate vanity set, one with a bit more of an elegant character, you will adore this extraordinary 1920's gold gilt and emerald jeweled hand mirror and brush vanity set, it awaits your approval and a special place on your vanity. Thank you for taking a look.
