Antique gothic vanity set - unusual find
A beautiful dark gothic matching mirror and brush set with ornate handles and framing.
This dark metal with golden flecks (potentially brass or bronze) Victorian vanity set contains it's original embroidery/stitch work, a stunning pastoral piece, protected behind glass, while the handles contain delicate and ornate scrollwork and floral details. This item has a French style of framing and ornamentation.
The mirror in this pair is large and in good condition with age expected wear in the form of de-silvering along the back and some mild cloudiness. The lines this produces can be seen in the images. The protective glass backs on these items are in good condition but there is some slight movement to the glass front and back - there are some minor marks to the embroidery/staining but all can be seen in the images. Wear like this can be expected due to the age of the item and the minor movement has been accounted for in the price.
The brush is in good condition for it's age. Some bristles have become bent or thin due to age with some minor staining and use but these elements of an expected amount for the age of these items. These bristles are natural boar brush bristles and are not plastic. This brush is intended as a decorative item only but can be used depending on your personal assessment of the bristles.
All wear can be seen in the images but for the age of these items they are in good condition and match the charm of it's aesthetic.
Perfect as a gift for a vintage beauty lover.

Wear on these items can be seen in the images, please make sure to check both the images and the description to assess their condition. Due to age wear and tear should be expected and I have done my best to highlight any flaws but other minor defects may still be present. All antique and vintage items are lightly polished and any further improvements to their condition is up to you.
