This is an amazing Dresser Set from ~ 1900-1925. It’s made of Py-ra-lin, the trade name of celluloid produced by the Arlington Co. Pyralin is the name of the early plastic created in the late 1800’s based on nitrocellulose, also known as celluloid. DuPont bought the Arlington Company and used the material to replace ivory by adding the lines for an ivory look. This set has 7 pieces: a powder jar and lid, a hair receptacle and lid, a nail buffer and tray and a hair brush with natural bristles. Its best feature is the exquisite hand painted blue flower floral design on the pieces. I cannot find another like it, a treasure! The pieces are in excellent condition considering their age. There’s a few minor scratches and some discoloration in the inside of the hair and powder containers and a brown spot under the nail tray, none of which are seen when the items are closed and on display. The pieces are lightweight and a bit fragile. The brush is ~9” long, the nail tray is ~6” long, the powder box is 4.5” wide x 2.75” tall, and the hair box is 4” wide x 2.5” tall.

The posted price is for the set. No need to ask if it’s still available. Posting will be removed immediately when the items are sold.
