This rustic faux bois ("false wood") hand mirror dates from 1895-1910.
This measures 8" x 3 1/2". It is 1 5/8" across the hole at the end of the handle.
The oval beveled mirror is set into a composite material that some say is made to resemble horn, or antlers, others declare these to be bakelite. We are unsure of the material, but it looks like a composite resin made to look like the bark of a tree, to us. The mirror is held in place, secured by a bent wood twig surround.
This has a circular hole at the end of the handle, some say these were to hang on a wall; others say it's purely decoration.
The mirror reflects nicely, with no distortion.
Colors: deep brown and black; this appears lighter than it truly is, as we tried to show the details better by lightening the images.
Perfect utilitarian decor for your cabin in the woods or for your rustic themed guest bedroom ~ add piles of plaid blankets and cozy quilts, a few good old hardbound books on cabin living, and an old lantern to create a cozy getaway for your guests!
