A lovely little hall or foyer mirror for a large 1" scale dollhouse or room box. Made in Germany in the first few years of the 20th Century by the Schneegas brothers company. Light wood with glued construction and a golden oak finish.
Measures just under 8 1/2" tall to the top of the scalloped piece on top, 2 3/4" wide and just over 2" deep.
Nicely detailed with two finials along with the scalloped cornice board on top and two half-columns flanking the mirror. The mirror bracket is mounted on a marble covered base supported by two scalloped leg brackets.
Wood grained backing paper and a note from a previous owner. The first part is illegible but is some explanation of the piece under which is written; "There is one like it in the Home for Aged here in Saginaw".
In very nice condition with some evidence of re-glues, most notably, around the mirror. There is also some discoloration or bleeding of color on the upper back which is concentrated on the upper cross piece of the mirror frame and the finials. The back paper shows water staining so the piece was exposed to water at one time although there is no warping or real damage to the wood. Small chip from the very top of the decorative top piece. The marble is in great condition and overall the piece is very nice and priced to compensate for the less than perfect condition.
A versatile and hard to find piece that could be used in almost any room but please check ceiling height dimension as the piece is quite tall.
