Art Deco Guilloche Enamel Travelling Dressing Vanity Set Leather Suitcase - Rare For Sale

Art Deco Guilloche Enamel Travelling Dressing Vanity Set Leather Suitcase - Rare

ART DECO GUILLOCHE ENAMEL 11 PIECE TRAVELLING VANITY/DRESSING/ GROOMING SET IN ITS ORIGINAL LARGE WEEKEND LEATHER SUITCASE - IN GREAT CONDITION – ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL AND EXTREMELY RARE!

A truly fabulous Art Deco travelling set in its original leather suitcase, consisting of 11 pieces of very stylish guilloche enamel in an extremely rare copper colour. This is a bespoke item of the very highest quality and would have been prohibitively expensive when it was new.

Each piece of this delicately crafted set has an eye-catching guilloche enamel pattern in this rare Art Deco copper colour, which radiates like a sunrise. This is an effect that a skilled craftsman achieves by finely engraving the metal underneath the enamel and then decorating it with a thin layer of guilloche enamel.

In addition, the larger pieces of mirror, hairbrush and clothes brush have a lovely black enamel setting on the handles along with finials on the ends all in the Art Deco style – please see the photos for the detail. The silver metal is probably chrome plated.

The brown leather suitcase and copper-coloured guilloche enamel pieces are complemented by a satin-lined brown interior, which has the same radiating waves pattern of the guilloche enamel. There are pockets on each side and attachment straps also in brown leather with press studs to hold the pieces in place. The larger pieces are mounted on the satin lined interior.

The set consists of: a mirror; a hairbrush; a clothes brush; a comb; four bottles and three manicure pieces. One small manicure piece is missing.

The case has two lock fastenings but no keys – although these should be easy to replace. It carries the initials lightly stamped and painted of gothic letters AMB – these should be easy to remove.

The suitcase is 45cm in length; 31cm in width and 15cm in depth. It is large for a vanity or dressing/grooming set and is the size of a weekend suitcase. Of the two largest pieces: the mirror is 33cm in length and 12cm at its widest point; the hairbrush is 26cm in length and 8.5cm at its widest point. Please ask if you would like to know the measurements for other pieces.

This fabulous set is in great condition for its age and the suitcase closes and snaps shut firmly. The guilloche enamel is completely intact on all the pieces. The tall bottle, which does not have a holding place and must be intended to be put in one of the pockets, has a very small bit of wear underneath the surface. There are the usual surface marks commensurate with age – nothing noticeable and only one or two very small patches of markings underneath the surface of the hairbrush. For the guilloche enamel to be in such wonderful condition on these pieces is very rare.

The brushes both have thick, complete and strong bristles. The mirror is perfect, giving a clear reflection, with no marks or fogging at all – like new! The chrome plated settings have some marks of wear to them. There is one small piece missing which should be easy to replace with something like a chrome plated pair of scissors.

This set has clearly hardly been used or out of its suitcase in many years.

An absolutely wonderful Art Deco guilloche enamel travelling, dressing set in its original brown leather suitcase and in fabulous condition. This is an extremely rare item that you will be highly unlikely to find anywhere and certainly not on and starting at £9.99 in a sale! Please note that no photos could everdo this set justice - it is really lovely.

It is highly collectable for so many different types of collectors – Art Deco, guilloche enamel, vanity/dressing/grooming sets – you name it! In addition, it would be a great film or television prop for the scout who is looking for original pieces from the Art Deco era.

And that’s not to mention what an original gift it would be for you to give! This would have been a bespoke piece of great quality for a person of high importance and wealth in the 1930s!

HAPPY offerDING!
