This is a classic and beautiful vanity mirror. It originates from Paris and dates from 1860-1870.

The gilded bronze frame is highly detailed. The handle has an open hourglass shape. There is a crowned eagle at the bottom center, sitting atop a tall pedestal. Tall arabesques flank him on either side. The top center of the handle joins to the mirror frame with a winged torch. The 1/2" wide mirror frame has a cast design of scrolls, acanthus leaves and cornucopia. It slopes inward to enhance the beveled glass mirror. The back plate is of gilded bronze and has a a small ring for hanging.

The mirror measures 10" tall and 4 1/2" wide. The glass itself is 3 5/8" in diameter. It is in good antique condition, there are no visible cracks or chips to the glass, the frame is sound.

It would be beautiful on a vanity top surrounded by pearls and glass perfume bottles.
