Lovely antique French hallmarked sterling silver & cut crystal or glass 4pc vanity set including three large perfume or cologne bottles and long 8 3/8â vanity box, all with bead festooned and acanthus leaf accents 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 youâre 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 6.5â decanters, a slightly smaller 6" bottle and that wonderful 8 3/8â wide box. All with a ribbed or fluted bodies, star or sunburst patterns cut in the bases and sterling tops. The silver portions all bear the French Minerve or Minerva hallmark, the tiny number "1" within those marks means they're all in .950 silver (95% pure and higher than the .925 standard for "sterling" silver). The silversmith marks are for Joseph Crossard, 36 Rue de Montemorency, Paris circa 1900-1920.
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. Original stoppers all intact. See pictures for all measurements.
