Beschreibung von SALE! Rare White Ironstone Brush Box – Blue-Gray Diamond and Dot Design – Unmarked Maker – Oval – English Country Cottage – Ironstone Beauty:
A lovely white ironstone brush box with unusual blue-gray raised dot and diamond design encompassed in long oval panels on lid.
A little history:
Ironstone boxes were extremely popular items,specifically between the years 1845-1862.
They were made out of white granite and ironstone and were lightly fired in order to create a glaze across the ceramic and also to smooth the piece out. The brush boxs sole purpose was to hold toiletries such as razors, toothbrushes and, of course, hair brushes.
They were very common in the middle and upper classes and could cost anywhere between $1 and $5.
-This brushbox almost appears to have an Art-Deco quality about it with its raised dot design centered with diamond shapes on either side of the handle.
-The box itself has a very simple form and a nice sturdy handle.
-I’m guessing at its age.
-Lovely oval shape.
-Unmarked except for faded gold “x” on the underside of the lid.
-Good vintage condition with some crazing on the box and areas of wear and 2 small chips on the lid. Please zoom in on the above pictures to see areas mentioned.
-This is just a lovely and unusual piece to add to your ironstone collection or to start one with today!
In recent years, ironstone has enjoyed a big come-back in popularity. Quite understandable because it’s truly a timeless look, a beautiful presentation with its white patina that adapts to any decor.
The box measures 8 3/4″ long x 3 3/4″ wide with lid x 3″ tall with its lid. The base in 2 1/4″ wide.
