Today for your consideration is this Romantic Ormolu Gold Gilt Free Standing Pedestal Double Sided Mirror covered with Rose Flower Blossoms! This vintage mirror dates to the 1940's and the ornate base and stand are simply covered in full rose flower blossoms and foliage. The mirror is double sided with a magnifying side, the regular mirrored side is beveled and sit securely in the ridged gilt band that wraps around the entire circumference of the mirrors. The stand holds the mirrors on a pivot and it allows you to adjust the mirror to your preference. Both sides of the stand have roses, so it can be displayed on with either side facing out or on a center table.
The entire mirror and stand measure 11 1/4" tall and 6 3/4" wide. The stand measures 4" across with a 12 1/2" circumference. The rose covered decorative stand measures 3 1/4" wide and 3 3/4" tall. The condition is commensurate of its age and it was obviously a much loved vanity item. There is loss to the gold gilt, especially on the rose covered stand area and the magnified mirror has some mottled darkening (see photographs) due to loss of the mirrored backing as it gave into the natural elements of the environment and lost some of the silver nitrate and copper sulfate backing.
This vintage mirror is sure to be a lovely & useful addition to your romantic dressing ~ vanity table or on a table in your French themed room. Enjoy!!
