French Bronze Hand Mirror With Miniature & Enamel, C.1900

An elegant fifteen inches in length from end to end , this antique hand mirror is marked FRANCE on the handle. Oval in shape , of gilded bronze decorated with salmon peach color guilloche' enamel and a hand-painted miniature . An aristocratic lady with upswept powdered hair , fancy dress and a string of pearls around her neck . The reverse with a bevelled mirror , still clear as the day it was made , Circa 1900. ......
