The hand mirror shows the number "2000" under the Sterling and R. Blackington stamp, and the brush shows "2027, " followed by some hand-etched numbers that appear to read "3419" and some illegible markings. The design is particularly unique - appearing to be simulating the look of ostrich skin. The mirror shows minor losses to the silvering on the top right, and a handful of negligible losses in other places.
There is a marking that goes through the "EAL" monogram on the back of the mirror, as well as some minor and moderate surface abrasions and occasional dark spots consistent with age and previous use - most if not all could be polished out with some effort. There is one somewhat more noteworthy dark spot on the handle of the brush. All in all however, both the brush and mirror display beautifully and are surely in good enough condition to be used and enjoyed. Brush: 9&3/8" x 2&3/4" x 1&1/2" Mirror: 12&3/8" x 4&3/16" x 7/16".
