This is an antique wall mirror, suitable for hanging in a bedroom above a dresser, or in a guest room, a bath or an entry way. The mirror comes from Scotland, around 1900.
This is the first mirror I ever photographed. It was difficult, to get good photos without catching the reflection of myself or everything in the room. The first photo will show my arm and camera and part of the ceiling. Other photos I managed to get mostly a black background reflected.
The front of the mirror is hand painted with a scene of a garden path. A young lady in period dress and a bonnet is on the far right on the path. The mirror is supposed to be water. There is a tree near her. To the left are flowers, greenery, birds, a stone railing and a garden ornament.
The mirror is 22 ¼” long, 13 ¼” high and about ½” thick, including the backing.
The back is solid wood with a chain in the middle to hang the mirror.
There are metal fasteners that hold the mirror to the wood; the metal is dark with patina and age.
The edge of the mirror has a few nicks and some discoloration due to age. There are no chips or cracks. The hand painted scene is of high quality.
