Mirror, mirror, on the wall, who’s the fairest of them all? Look no further than this pleasing, undemanding mirror that would add a touch of elegance to any room. For many years, mirrors have been known to be a decorating staple. In Regency England, not only were they objects of beauty and wealth, they enlarged small spaces by reflecting light and extending one’s field of vision. This beautiful mirror, complete with its original plate, is in excellent condition. The artist has carefully rendered six bunches of delicate leaves, filigree patterns, and swirling circles all along the frame. The edge of the mirror features a decorative band of spheres, giving the impression that a string of pearls is lining this object. This attention to detail is surely something to admire. As mirrors are delicate and fragile creations, it is uncommon for antique mirrors with original plates to stand the test of time. Thus, this item is of distinct value.
