Distinguishing Characteristics - Most Interesting About The Piece: This is a nice classic antique worthy of a spot in your collection.
Condition: The piece is in very good condition given its age and utilitarian function. It has few Scratches and Nicks to the brass and could use a good cleaning to bring her beauty out. The piece has residue of brass cleaner, but that can be removed easily. The backing of the mirror has wear, minor losses, some staining, soiling and wear along the edges. The only issue we see is the fact that three of the clips holding the backing (the bottom three) have been replaced and extend slightly beyond the frame. Be that as it may the piece is still great looking and that issue is minor and does not affect the quality and beauty of the mirror. Please see photos to appreciate the beauty of the piece and for additional condition information.
