Edwardian Silver Hairbrush And Mirror

That’s my ‘new old’ Edwardian silver dressing table set which I recently won at an auction. 😀

The vanity set consists of a hairbrush, mirror and clothes brush.

The hairbrush has boar bristles and a wooden brush-back.

The hand mirror is really heavy. 🙂 It has an unusual oval shape and some dark spots on the mirror glass.

The dressing table set is made of 835 silver.

The set might’ve been manufactured in the 1910s. What do you think?

I’ve cleaned the hairbrush with soda and water, like Edwardian silver hairbrushes were usually cleaned.

By the way, the crochet lace in the background is my DIY crochet lace skirt.

The  hairbrush has a lot more, longer and more closely spaced bristles than modern boar bristle hairbrushes, so it’d brush the hair better than modern hairbrushes; but sadly the wooden brush-back smells musty.
