Housed within a black lacquer, easel frame with silver overlay, this antique beveled mirror is a lovely dresser accessory. The repousse overlay displays a monogrammed shield on the crest, surrounded by flowers and flanked by birds; with putti and foliage along the sides and a female mask, center bottom. It is a great Victorian antique and rare find.
