Liberty Cymric Silver Vanity Set (6 pieces)
Reference: S1360
Period: Edward VII
Year: 1909
Silversmith: Liberty and Co.
Place: Birmingham
Price: $ 540.00
Weight: 117 grams
Dimensions: 11.5 cm, buff 8.0 cm
Condition: Good to excellent overall. Scissor tip broken off. Steel parts rusted.

Description: A Liberty Cymric nail vanity set, complete with buff, tweezers, file, scissors, knife and shaper, all steel manicure tools with silver handles set with turquoise cabochons on each side (10 in total). Each piece is fully hallmarked with "L & Co" makers mark, townmark, date letter and sterling mark, but none have the "cymric" stamp, as they were probably too small. Handbeaten silver set with turquoise cabochons is classic Arts and Crafts, probably designed by Archibald Knox, who designed for Liberty until 1912. The scissors do not have cabochons, but are a lovely shape (unfortunately one steel tip is broken off). The nail buff has its original leather base, which is worn but still intact. This set matches item S 1361.
