5 Favorites: Dressing Table Accessories for the Gilded Age

Issue 72 · The Gold Coast · May 14, 2013

In honor of this week's glamor issue, inspired by "The Great Gatsby," we're thinking about 1920s-style opulence and having fantasies of the ultimate dressing table accessories. For most of us, "the dressing table" really means the bathroom counter, or if you're a city dweller, even the hallway mirror in your flat. Here are the top five items on our dressing table wish list:

Early 20th Century Shield Mirror from Christopher Howe, Remodelista

Above: We like this Early 20th Century Shield Mirror with a Gothic note, formerly of the collection of John Hobbs Esq. and available through Christopher Howe in London.

Lindsey Adelman Vessels, Remodelista

Above: We'd be content to store a bit of eau de parfum in one of Lindsey Adelman's blown-glass vessels with sculptural cast-brass stoppers; the Large Vessel is $540 from Matter.

Saskia Diez Jewelry Box, Remodelista

Above: Saskia Diez' Wooden Jewelry Box (the AC02 Jewel) designed for e15 is a modular four-piece jewelry case made from European walnut; €490 from Saskia Diez.

Oji Masanori Brass Tray, Remodelista

Above: Available at Mjölk in Toronto, Oji Masanori's Brass Ihada Rectangle Tray is made from solid brass with an Ihada finish (sand cast with a rough surface), which aids in keeping glassware from sliding; $440 CAD.

Swallowtail Waste Bin, Remodelista

Above: Designed by Craster, the Swallowtail Waste Bin is made from durable aero plywood that is steam bent and fastened with copper nails; $175 from Huzza.
