This is one of the nicest mirrors I have seen in a while. The outer rim tests to be 10K gold. I'm sure it is only plated due to seeing some wear and other metal exposed. It has ornate open metal work between the long handle. Designs of laurel leaves decorate the handle and show wear where some wonderful woman held it to admire herself. The top of the mirror has a beautiful metal decoration applied. The back of this awesome piece is covered with metal that has aged with a nice rich patina. At the center, is a porcelain medallion with a beautiful transfer of a young maiden and her suitor resting in the grass. A raised metal boarder with raised bows and designs is around the mirror. The mirror itself is cloudy but not broken. Please see pictures for condition. The end of the handle will unscrew, possibly to hold secret love notes or important documents??
Measures: 13" long with handle, mirror itself is 4 1/2" wide (without frame)
