Antique American Belleek 3 Piece Dresser Set
$495

This 3 piece porcelain dresser set was produced in the U.S. by a Belleek manufacturer around 1900. There is no manufacturer’s mark because it was sold "white wear" to an amateur painter for decoration. The color of the porcelain is similar to Willets, Lenox, or Ceramic Arts Company which produced American Belleek porcelains in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The brush is 9 inches long, the mirror has a diameter of 5 3/4 inches and the comb is 8 3/4 inches long. This was a truly amazing find to acquire three matching pieces of wonderful American porcelain in such excellent condition. The silver on the hand mirror is quite good. The comb teeth are made of celluloid and that survived so well. All of the bristles in the brush are intact. The porcelain is molded with high relief rococo swirls which are accented with hand applied gilding. The mirror and the brush have the most appealing little hand painted cherubs on them. This set had been protected and cherished for decades evidenced by the fine condition it is in.
