PYRAMID JEWELED DRESSER SET

16 Piece Celluloid Bakelite Art Deco Vanity Set

This lovely Pyramid marbleized celluloid dresser set, complete with violet-purple rhinestones (all present),

is ready for you to display in very good to excellent shape unless mentioned below:

CLOCK

The key-wound clock measures about 6½” wide x 3½” high x 1½” deep.

The clock is not working and seems like it is wound too tight. There is some oxidation on the back metal.

TRAY

This oval dresser tray measures 11” x 7 ¾” and features a lovely enclosed needlework piece.

PICTURE FRAME

The picture frame measures about 6¼” x 4¼”. The opening is about 2½” x 4”.

The violet felt on the back is a bit worn and shows its age.

HAND MIRROR

I have doubts about the mirror being original to this set--the shape matches but there is no decoration.

It’s heavy and measures about 15” long x 6” across.

The mirror is beveled and while the mirror has cloudiness, there is no silver loss and it is usable.

There are some spots on the mirror side of the celluloid and slight discoloration on the other side.

COMB & BRUSH

The comb is marked Pyramid and they both feature a faux pearl along with the rhinestones.
