Rare Antique Vanity Dresser Set Gold Ormolu Filigree Handles Petit Point Backs:
The photos have a reflection from the "can" lights overhead. No matter how hard I try the reflection makes spots on the petite point back that are not there. They are reflection spots.
This is a gorgeous vanity dresser set from before the turn of the century The handles are ornate gold plated brass filigree work with floral metal work all over the handles front, back and sides. The set looks Italian or French, since this is such elaborate metal work. There are no manufacturing marks that I can find, but I may not be looking in the right place. The backs are covered with beautiful petit point needlework flowers. I have owned this set for approx. 50 years and they were in this box when I got them. I don't know if it is the original box. It's satin lined and could use a little cleaning. The set is in great antique condition. The 2 brushes have all their bristles. On the comb there is a tiny break on the end of one tooth. The rest of the teeth are perfect. There are minor stains on the back of the hand brush. I have not polished or tried to clean this set, since so many people want items in their original condition. Look closely at the photos as they are a crucial part of the description.
