A Late Victorian two light girandole mounted on a wall hanging mirror with a classical Bacchanalian theme. Bacchus (Dionysus in Greek mythology) was the patron deity of the theater as well as agriculture which explains the theater masks on each corner and the bottom center of the mirror. On each side is a robed male figure. A cut out or open cast grapevine motif forms the border of the mirror and encircles the candlestick arms which scroll up from the bottom of the mirror. Above Bacchus' head is a floral design.

The overall dimensions are 17'' x 10" and the mirror is 8 1/2" x 7". The candlesticks are 3 1/2" out from the back of the mirror. The back has a brass plate that is screwed to the mirror frame. There is a loop for hanging the mirror. There are some spots of gilt on the back side which suggest that the mirror was gilded originally, but the gilt has been worn or polished off over time.

One screw at a top corner has broken off, but it doesn't interfere with the structural integrity of the piece. One of the screws attaching the candle holders is a replacement. There is a little verdigris. The mirror has some blemishes, especially around the edge.
