Learn about Dressing Table Accessories

Many collectable items from the late Victorian and Edwardian periods are associated with the dressing-table. Jars in glass or porcelain, often highly decorative, were produced at this time for face powder, with silver mounts decorated in Art Nouveau styles. Glass trays in matching sets accommodated hairpins (themselves widely differing in decorative treatment), trinkets and rings. Matching sets of brushes and hand mirrors may be found with silver, electroplate or enamelled backs in contemporary motifs. A wide variety of perfume bottles were made, including by such luminaries as Lalique, Daum and Galle.
