Nippon Roses 80s Reproduction Perfume Bottle-Vanity Jar
This pretty vanity set was purchased from an estate sale about 15 years ago. There is a perfume bottle and powder jar or trinket box with matching patterns of roses with gold lustre banding. It may have never been used as it is in excellent condition... no chips, cracks, repairs, stains or loss of gold. I never used it... just had it in my collection to look at. The bottle is 5" high. The box is 3.25" high and 3-3/8" square.
The pieces are marked: Hand Painted Nippon, but a fellow ebayer has alerted me to the fact that it is not Nippon but a more recent reproduction. Reproductions and/or fantasy pieces marked Nippon began appearing in the US in the late 70's. The hour glass mark inside the wreath is one indication. Not being a collector of Nippon myself, I was not aware of the reproductions... but that would also explain the excellent condition. It is still a very pretty set which I have enjoyed for a long time... just be aware that it is not Nippon.
