We are offering a lovely vintage vanity or hand mirror. It is made of French Ivory, a fancy name for celluloid. French ivory is a type of plastic invented in the late 1860's to imitate real ivory. French ivory was the trade name for objects produced by the JB Ash Co. in Illinois. French or faux ivory is synonymous with several other trade names including Genuine French Ivory or Ivoire De Paris (often accompanied by an elephant symbol), Ivorette, Depose Ivor-Tone France, Ivorine, Ivorite, and Pyralin.
The back of the mirror is beautifully hand painted with pink roses, swirls, stems and leaves. The glass is beveled.
The mirror measures approximately 13" in total length and 7-1/2" in width. The handle itself is approximately 6-1/2" long.
The mirror is in very good condition. The glass has no chips or cracks or dark spots. There are a few surface scratches from normal use. There is one very small darkish spot on the celluloid and one small white (looks like paint that was used to decorate the piece) on the handle.
A lovely piece for your vanity, powder room, boudoir or guest room!
