A pair from a fine Edwardian English vanity case, separated from their valise at some point. I've had this pair for decades. Time to let a lot of things like this go. This pair are just beautiful, particularly displayed on mirror so the crystal can burst with light. The caps have a cushion top of ivory mounted to sterling silver (hallmarks shown) Maker G.C&S, London, and date marks for your exploration. I'm sorry, these got photographed ahead of being polished and cleaned fully. They will be cleaned and rephotographed, the listing annotated. Slight residue of perfume can be seen and a little tarnish on the fine sterling silver. The pair sold together.
Very good to excellent condition, no chips, no cracks or hairlines to the flasks, even in the slender necks which are sometimes damaged. No stoppers because these are lid corked, so they seal very tightly without stoppers. The antique ivory cushions up top have a few light aging/shrinkage hairlines, no chips and no breaks. They are typical of antique ivory. Measurements are noted on our photos.
IMPORTANT NOTE regarding antique tortoise shell or ivory: We are great supporters of protection for endangered species in our modern world. We never buy or sell anything 100 years or newer; we donate to anti-poaching organizations; we don't hunt; we conserve in ways that impact global warming (we're totally solar at home), knowing those measures also protect the animals in the wild today. We also recognize the vast cultural history we preserve with our care and reverence for these antique objects, and agree with CITES that objects over 100 years of age have nothing whatsoever to do with species depletion in our current world.
Our offering exceeds the age limitation of "more than 100 years of age", and is well within the exemption for CITES regulation. If imported, met the CITES regulation. This item will be handled and shipped from our Utah business, and is not available for shipment internationally, nor within the USA to California, NY, Nevada, Hawaii, New Jersey, Oregon, Washington if it contains ivory, sorry. Please see our small print for more details.
