A vanity mirror with a pale green hardstone handle, a finely-detailed metal band and a porcelain back with a pretty a design of a pomegranate and peony.
The hand mirror has a round mirror on one side and a round porcelain back with design of pomegranate in fruit and a peony bush done with over glaze enamels. The mirror and back are secured by a thin copper like metal mount with repousse designs of flowers and beads. The mirror has a good weight to it.
The handle and base are a pale green hardstone secured to the mirror by another metal repousse band. The stone, which is cold to the touch, translucent and has a soft hand-polish, resembles jade but isn’t dense enough to be jade. Air bubbles are not visible and so we’ve ruled out glass too. The stone is very pretty.
