This item is a superb HAND CARVED BLACK FOREST CRESCENT MIRROR. This is an exceptional piece of Black Forest artistry. These crescent mirrors have always been very popular Black Forest items. The eagle carving is extraordinary with great detail, beautiful color and exceptional patina. Overall, the mirror measures 15” wide and 15 1/2” tall. The mirror does have some issues including the chipped bits on the top corner as seen in the photo and some mirror loss of silvering elsewhere on the edges. These tend to be typical faults as the mirror is well over 100 years old and is original to the piece. Never-the-less, this is a great piece of Black Forest for any serious collector to own.
