This sat on my Grandmother's vanity as long as I can remember (more than 45 years). I always thought it was pretty. The paisley fabric with bluish-gray, yellow, and pink flowers on it, has held up well over all the years. I wish I would have inquired about it when I could! Grandma had such wonderful ways of telling about things that made you listen closely to every detail! This is one thing that I didn't ever ask about, unfortunately.

The brush was used for her jackets and sweater. (Lint brush). It was likely intended to use as a lady's hat brush. The bristles on the brush are not as coarse as a modern plastic bristle that you would buy now. They are firm but bendable. They do not scratch when they rub, but they are firm enough to clean off a jacket or hat properly. Under the paisley covered brush is a wood handle that holds the bristles tight. It has been used over the years but is in good condition considering age and normal use. The comb has the brand name "GARANTIE" on it. I am not sure if it is the original comb or not, but it fits the case perfectly. The tray has a glass that fits it bottom center of it. It has no chips or cracks in the glass. The back of the tray almost looks as though it was made with a type of bark. Very unique! (Please click on each photo twice to enlarge it and take a close-up look).

My best guess for age on this set would be the 1950's, but I can't be exact. They are definitely vintage though!

My grandma kept everything, and I can't enjoy it all myself, so I'll share with you, at GreenGablesLane.etsy.com Please check out my other items from Grandma and her one-room school-house days! www.GreenGablesLane.etsy.com
