This beautiful French mirror was known as a travel mirror. An indispensable accessory to a noble lady, it would have been stored in her traveling trunk, which it easily fit into because it folds flat.
The mirror is of solid iron with a brushed nickel finish. It has beautiful detail featuring a young girl's head at the top center of the mirror, which is framed by a shell shape. Roses are placed on either side of the young girl and the frame is filled with additional scrolls and roses. The bottom mirror center has a grotesque face motif, flanked by scrolls and roses. The mirror glass is in excellent condition with normal darkening due to age. The mirror dates from 1880-1910.
The entire mirror including frame is in excellent condition. It measures: 17" high (measured at the center peak), 13 1/2" wide (measured at the feet).
