Selected for its beautifully distressed appearance and striking overpainted patina, this mirror has evident losses, some historic repairs and overpainting to the top ornate moulding and imperfections throughout. Signs of ageing, wear and foxing to the mirror plate with a few surface scratches. Mirror gives a good, clear reflection. Old ply back. As with all of our old mirrors we have given this mirror a precautionary woodworm treatment. Please see photos for details.
