Oh, this one! Acanthus in the finest French form, a shaped body and the old original thick beveled mirror intact. I just love these beautifully carved old Black Forest hand mirrors. They hang on the walls in bathrooms in both of our homes, and cover walls in some of our customer's homes, as well, grouped. A few have told me they use them lying on a dresser top to display their perfume bottles at ready reach and with the wonderful old thick beveled glass mirror reflecting light up through the bottles. You'll find the perfect way to use this one. I have a group of these we're about ready to list, so if this one isn't that perfect one for you, be sure to look further or ask for us to point you to others we have. They're all sold separately.
Very good condition for age and type. None of these seem to be absolutely perfect, though this one comes very close. We've taken numerous and highly detailed clear images so you can look them over fully. This one has a small bit of the silvering gone on the very old original shaped and beveled mirror missing. Light rubs to tips of leaves, we did not touch up with stain at all so you can see the light spots. They will cover with a little dark wood Old English. The wood has the original stain and patina, no varnish. Mirror on this one has light imperfections, but just look at that cut - the old beveled glass that is a little thicker. Shows brilliantly on wall, in an oversized 13.5" long, 6.5" wide.
Our photos are large and clear. We do expect our customers to review them all, evaluate the item based on both our description and our images. Thanks for all the compliments - we love what we do! Antiques & Uncommon Treasure - all the best, all the time!
