Antique Milk Glass Complete 14 Pc Dresser Set. 2 Cologne Decanters w Stoppers, 4 Vanity Boxes w Lids, & 2 Trays. Enameled Roses w Gold. rkoa



This hand painted antique vanity set includes 2 perfume bottles with stoppers, 4 different shaped vanity boxes with lids, and two different sized oval trays.

I consider this set to be in excellent over all glass condition, as well as, to have the paint in excellent over all condition. The details of the condition of each piece is detailed below and in the pictures. Do not be afraid to use the zoom in the pictures; I do not think you will be disappointed. As they say, it is definitely great “eye candy”.

I have had this set for many, many years. I bought it in Massachusetts. I lived in a small town (Wareham) and would occasionally go to New Bedford (ah! The big city) to shop at their wonderful antique shops. This was obtained about 20 years ago in a small antique shop there. I loved it so much that it moved with me to Virginia, where we retired to 6 years ago. I am not getting any younger and simply want this to go to someone else that might appreciate it as much as I have. It is a piece of history worth preserving.

Shared Postage. I am a small seller and cannot offer "free shipping", so I am sharing the postage on this item with you. I have done this by manipulating the "calculated shipping" so that it will show you a lesser amount than the actual shipping; I will be paying the remainder.

1. Please allow an extra day for me to ship these items as packing time will be considerable and important. (I do not prepack any of my shipments, as I like to inspect them and take pictures before they go off to their new homes.) I pack quite well and have been told that I pack as if my items are going to spend a couple of days in a Category 5 Hurricane. I have also been told that I do not pack for war, but rather a nuclear blast. So rest assure, these will be very carefully packaged. I am sending you a piece of history.
2. This package (or packages) will be insured fully (At my expense, as it should be since insurance benefits the seller).
3. You will have to sign for the delivery of this set (Also at my expense and for the same reason).

Shipping from United States

I ship to the United States of America (all 50 of them), APOs, FPOs, DPOs, Puerto Rico, the United States Virgin Islands, American Samoa, The Northern Mariana Islands, and Guam.

Your package is important to you AND me.

I ALWAYS reimburse you if the shipping is less than estimated by the Etsy calculator.

I NEVER request additional funds if the shipping is more than estimated.

If payment is received by 8:00 PM Eastern Time, then the package will usually be in the mail the NEXT day. [I end my work day about 9:00 PM.]

I normally ship within one business day of payment and I usually ship SIX days a week. I live in a small town, so my post office is normally only open 29 hours per week. I don't have a problem working around their tight schedule.

Once again - your package is IMPORTANT, not only to you, but also to me.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long does it normally take you to ship an item?

All orders received by 8:00 PM Eastern Time are processed (mailed) the next day. I ship daily six days a week --- except when there is a holiday.
In the last year, my statistics show that I ship 100% in 1 day or less; in fact, I have shipped 78% of the time the next business day and 22% of the time same day.

What do you do if the shipping calculator has over estimated or under estimated the shipping charges?

If the shipping calculation is over by more than 25 cents, I will reimburse you. Yup, I will reimburse you 25 cents.

If the shipping calculator is under by any amount, you will not know about it; that is, I will not request that you make any further payment because of an error of mine, the calculator, or the system.

If I contact you, when can I expect a reply? What are your normal working hours?

My normal hours seven days a week are 1:00 - 9:00 PM. I answer questions within two hours during this time.
On my off hours, I will normally return your question as soon as I open up for the day.

I do not operate with any smart devices - only dumb ones, as they simply do not work in dead zones, so I periodically throughout my day check the old desktop.

Are there any other requirements to return an item? For what reasons do you allow returns?

1. You, the buyer, shall ensure the items are received by me in the SAME condition in which you received it. You are not required to use the original packaging and box. Feel free to use your own if you so desire
2. In addition, please provide me, via a convo, the tracking number within one eight calendar days of receiving the item.

Returns can be made for any reason whatsoever. You will receive the original cost of the item and the original shipping. I do not charge a bogus restocking fee. Be aware that the cost to return the item (shipping) will not be reimbursed to you.

Do I, the buyer, pay for shipping insurance?

As you may or may not be aware, shipping insurance benefits the seller. I normally pay for the insurance, if any. The only time, you (the buyer) would pay for the insurance is if YOU request it.

I do not normally buy additional insurance as I tend to pack for a nuclear blast...or, at least, for war.

Do you accept offers?

NO, I am sorry. I do not.

I do, however, encourage you to shop around. In many of my listings, I leave a reference at the bottom of the description to assist you in your research. This way, you will be able to compare apples with apples.

Do you have any sales going on right now?

I have currently half priced a couple of items in my sister stand alone shop (

In addition, I have items on sale in my store,, as well as my shop,
