Antique Edwardian Sterling Silver Vanity Set

An ornate and fully hallmarked  Edwardian sterling silver ten piece dressing set in excellent condition.The maker is William Devenport, who is especially well known for his elaborately decorated vanity sets. The items are presented in the original silk and velvet lined case. Each handle is hallmarked silver and as you would expect the shafts are made from high quality steel, which is traditionally the material used in these pieces for its great strength. 
This impressive set comprises of:
A powder bowl, nail buffer, a nail file, two cuticle pushers, nail scissors, tweezers, a shoe horn and two different sizes of button hooks.
All the items are hallmarked and delightfully embellished with repoussé work
The nail buffer is fitted with chamois to the underside.
The case is in good condition the hinges work well and the lid is held shut by gilt clasps. The interior lid is lined with sumptuous midnight blue silk which also covers the hinges. The base is fitted with custom made recesses which are clad in midnight blue velvet. The deepest recesses made for the buffer and powder bowl are lined with midnight blue silk. The silk and velvet appear much lighter in the images as we are using powerful studio lamps.
All the items fit snugly in the recesses.
