This is one of the times when I which I had the gift of gab to describe this wonderful mirror, but I don't so again I am going to have to let the pictures tell the rest of the story. Mirror measures 9 1/2" from the top to the bottom of the handle. The round beveled mirror measures approximately 5 1/8" in diameter. The detail work is fabulous. The hand mirror is silverplate over copper, with some areas of wear where the copper is showing thru. Other than age appropriate light wear, both the beveled mirror and the metal of the mirror are in very good condition. Truly a work of art this piece is wonderful as it is, but either stripped to the copper, or re silvered it would be fabulous.
