Unusual relic of 1930's China is this pair of Mirrors depicting Chinese beauties against a background illustration of a riverside scene of Shanghai which I found in a fleamarket in France.
The mirrors were in fact from the 1930's and were advertisements for a brand of Tea, the women being famous national symbols of their day. The pictures are lithographic paper prints which have been set behind shaped windows in the mirrors.
They were originally from Shanghai which was a famous international city and a hub for the wealthy social set. The mirrors are very decorative and in good condition with some fading of the silvering at the edges where the mirror meets the frame.

Each mirror measures 22 inches wide x 16 high. In very good condition.
