Lovely antique French hallmarked sterling silver & cut crystal or glass 3pc vanity set including two larger graduated perfume or cologne bottles and a lovely large round vanity box or jar, all with acanthus leaf accented pattern and ribbed or fluted bodies! One of a few sets of matching antique to vintage French sterling topped vanity sets that Iâve recently been working on, getting ready for listing so, if youâre looking for a few pieces to display in a guest or master bath, be sure to browse a little while you're with us. They really do add a touch of elegance, displayed on an old silver tray or even just by themselves, grouped near the sink perhaps. This set consisting of two bottles or decanters, one 6" tall and the other slightly smaller at 5" tall and a wonderful 3 3/8" diameter jar. All with a ribbed or fluted bodies, star or sunburst patterns cut in the bases and elegant French sterling tops. The silver portions all bear the French Minerve or Minerva hallmark, the tiny number "1" within those marks means theyâre all in .950 silver (95% pure and higher than the .925 standard for "sterling" silver). The silversmith marks are for Emile Langlois, Paris circa 1888-1924.
Very good condition. There is a bit of cloudiness to the inside of the decanters, visible in the images, and a few small base chips but no cracks, etc. A small dimple or two possible to the silver tops but no larger dents, damage or repairs to note other than a few darkened spots to the surfaces. The two colognes are missing the interior stoppers but we could have our glass repair man make some if you prefer for a small fee. See pictures for all measurements.
