This item is a lovely HAND CARVED BLACK FOREST HAND MIRROR. It has an exquisitely carved frame with great detail and lovely color and patina. THe mirror, which is most likely original, shows some wear but is still serviceable. The mirror can be easily changed but we chose not to do this because some buyers like the signs of age and wear. I don't much care for that when I look into a mirror but what can one do. A replacement mirror would be very inexpensive - a few dollars at most - and easily done by removing four small screws at the back of the mirror. The mirror measures 12" by 5 1/4".
