B980 - SOLD
This is a sublime vintage French bathroom set consisting of a double towel rail, a single towel rail and two beaker holders.
It would make an authentic timeworn addition to a vintage bathroom or perhaps the pieces could be used as vintage shop display accessories or in a vintage boudoir. The rails would be perfect for belts, and the beaker loops would be ideal for hanging necklaces.
The supporting back plates of each piece are in the shape of an oval with an elaborately decorated border. In the centre of each oval is a further decorative oval with an ingenious twisting action. Once each back plate has been fixed to the wall this little oval can then be twisted back to a vertical position thus hiding the screws.
The supports of the rails have a gorgeous decorative acanthus leaf and medallion design. The silvering on the pieces has mellowed over the years to a fabulous pewter hue.
The beaker holders have a further very attractive antique patina from years of exposure to water. The towel rails also have a surface patina (please see photos) which is stable and suitable for use with dry towels.
The back plates each measure 12 cm (4.75 inches) high x 6.5 cm (2.5 inches) wide.
The overall width of each towel rail is 56.5 cm (21.75 inches).
The single towel rail is 8 cm (3.25 inches) deep.
The double towel rail is 15.5 cm (6 inches) deep.
A fabulous timeworn bathroom set to add a château chic finishing touch and another divine antique French find from La Belle Étoffe!
