This is a very special vanity or dressing table set.
It is a set made from wood with sections decorated with poker work / pyrography. The wood is painted in dark burnt orange colour - and the flowers which have been created with a hot poker tip have been coloured in with yellow and green colours- it is certainly very lush!
The flowers are nasturtiums - which was a very popular decorative motif in the 1920s and 1930s. The pattern and colours are the same across each item - but if you look carefully at my images - you will see two pieces in the set have a pretty butterfly added.
Given that the set is now an antique item and about 100 years old - everything is in excellent condition for its age. There are no nasty chips or cracks to the wood - and the painted areas are without losses.
I have taken lots of images for your inspection.
I haven't seen such a fine or highly coloured set for quite some time now - so it is rather rare - and given the vibrant colours, condition and rarity of the set - it is listed at a good price.
Here is how the set breaks down:
Pair of Candlesticks: Height 14 cm and diameter of the base is 12 cm (£65)
The trinket box is 13 cm square and with a height of 5 cm (£40). It is hinged at the rear and the lid lifts up - the interior is covered in dark orange velvet. There are some light marks on the velvet lining - but it is acceptable for a functional piece of this age.
The wee pot with the pink interior and butterfly on the lid is height 8 cm and the diameter at the base is 5.5 cm (£30)
The handheld mirror is 34.5 cm in length and at the widest point, it is 15.5 cm. The mirror diameter is 12.5 cm. The mirror is in good condition - a couple of little light bloom marks and some discoloured silvering at one end - but otherwise, it is fine (£45).
I love the wee tray these come with - fabulous shape and decoration. This is 32.5 x 16 cm - with a height of 2 cm (£45).
I have broken down individual prices for you - the grand total for this set comes to £225.
It will have to be sent with Royal Mail Recorded to you - this will cost £10 and applied to your order at the checkout.
