This set is perhaps the most trashy, overpriced thing AG has ever produced. I spent $10 on them on sale and still feel like I paid too much.
The set comes with that little slip warning parents and girls that they should take care when playing with the "high-quality" "authentic" accessories. Certainly - if plastic was invented in the 1700s!
Okay, enough rant.
Mirror: Plastic. The frame is silvered plastic, the mirror itself is plastic. It does reflect well, which is not always true of plastic mirrors, but you could honestly find a similarly sized mirror with a metal frame and real glass at the dollar store.
Flower Vase: Real porcelain, cute detail on the outside. However, there is a rubber thing stuck down in it to support the flowers, meaning that the only thing you can put in it is the flowers AG includes! The flowers are also nothing special, standard-issue fake things.
Powder box: Blue and white porcelain. Kind of cute, except my lid doesn't fit! It's slightly off and so doesn't sit properly. The powder puff is also very cute, but nothing that couldn't be made - and made better - with a little imagination.
Tablecloth: It's a cloth. The lace is nice.
Overall: definitely overpriced at full price. Probably overpriced on sale. Most of this could easily be replicated by pursuing dollar stores and craft shops.
