    Kept in as-found, distressed condition, with losses and heavy foxing to mirror plate. This is what makes the mirror beautiful. Woodworm holes evident all over wooden frame. Losses to small areas of beading on frame and loss to top right-hand corner through previous woodworm.

    Some light scratches to mirror plate. Backboards have split and come apart in places as wood is very dry through age. Slight gaps in mitred corners through age. The mirror has been given a thorough woodworm treatment as a precaution. Please refer to photos.
