3 Section, Oak Framed, Advertising Mirror - Boston Varnish Company

This vintage, three section folding mirror is advertising Kyanize Celoid Finish. The three panels are made of a dark stained oak and set with mirror. They are double hinged so they fold in either direction. The center piece has a slightly recessed round medallion at the top. In the center of the circle is a radiating gold dome. Although very faint it reads; Boston Varnish Company - Varnishes and Enamels. In brighter gold letters it reads; Celoid Finish Kyanize. The panel on the left reads; A Sanitary Washable Coating and the right panel reads; For Wood Fibreboard Plaster. There is a paper panel on the back of the center section which tells of the company products manufactured by The Upson Company of New York but unfortunately the left portion has been worn and rubbed to the point that it is only partially legible.

The finish appears to be original and overall in good condition with minor wear. There are some nicks to the wood along the edges in a couple of places but no major damage. The mirrors appear to be original, foxy and somewhat stained but intact and not cracked or broken. The nails holding the mirrors appear to be new finish nails.

The center section measures about 16 3/16" high and the side panels measure about 13 9/16". Each panel measures about 7 15/16" wide by 3/4" thick.

The pictures are not shown at actual size. Please refer to the description for actual measurements.
