A darling antique Victorian brass hand mirror with a lovely pressed celluloid inset.
The celluloid has a wonderful design of a winged cherub surrounded with a chain of flowers, a butterfly hovers below.
The brass framing the celluloid design has an ornate repousse foliate design with shell corners, the puffed handle is plain.
The beveled mirror on the reverse side is framed with a thick twist.
The brass has a dark aged patina, it looks as if it was silver plated though most of the plating has worn off, remnants can be seen on the handle.
The overall condition is very good, the celluloid is very clean for its age with minimal scratches and no discoloring, cracks or splits, the handle has a minor ding on one side.
The mirror is very clean, no darkening or scratches.
An endearing antique hand mirror c1880.
