Late Victorian Dressing Table Set

SKU: RJ00591
£35.00Price

The dressing table and vanity sets have a long history as a status symbol of high fasion. Few other pieces of furniture and associated paraphenalia have worked so hard to keep up with changing societal trends. Cosmetic boxes predate the dressing table, and it wasn't until the late 1700s that someone placed the box on a table, and vanity finally had it's own  piece of furniture dedicated to it.  By the mid 1800's the dressing table, complete with vanity sets, was the must have item of any woman of moderate to great means.  Dressing table sets, were used exclusively by women,  as gentlemen would have stood up to shave and groom.  

 

This late Victorian dressing table set is a faily plain design, and would have been owned by someone of average means.  It is in white pottery, decorated in a popular pink rose design, likely mass-produced in Staffordshire.  

 

The set is comprised of: 

A pair of candlesticks 

Two covered pots (used for hair grips/cotton wool etc.)

A large tray 

 

All pieces are in good condition apart from a tiny chip o the inside of one of the pots.

 

Dimensions: Tray measures 23cm x 18cm
