Lovely Eastlake Victorian walnut shaving (or make-up) mirror. The top mirror frame features a carved rosette in the middle, open and incised carvings, an inverted saw tooth and tapered spires on each side (the tiny finials are replaced). The rectangular mirror is held in the frame by a turned threaded knob on each side. The mirror can be adjusted to the desired height by the threaded knob in the back. There are two drawers below the marble. The top drawer has an original brass key for the lock and the bottom one has a wonderful original bar pull. Notice that the front of the drawers are joined to the sides in a method only used in the 1880-1900 Victorian period. The stand has a tapered turned and fluted center and open carved decorations and legs on the sides. All elements are further decorated with incised carvings. A majestic shaving mirror that would be a lovely addition to most any room!
Dimensions: 74" (minimum height with mirror resting on marble - can be adjusted to be higher) x 19"W x 16"D
