Exceptional French Brass Hanging Hand Mirror Ornate Ormolu Frame & HP Portrait
Offered at sale is an exceptionally lovely French brass hanging hand mirror which measures 11" long, 3 3/8" wide. The entire frame is made from elaborately patterned brass with added ormolu decorations at the ends. The handle also has such decoration and a ring is at the end of the handle so the mirror can hang. The hand painted portrait depicts a French lady in her finery. It is not signed; it measures 2" long, 1 1/8" wide and is probably done on organic material. The portrait is upright when the mirror is hanging. The mirror is beveled and made from heavy glass. The mirror is marked "Made in France" on the side and probably dates to ca. 1900-1910.
The piece is in very good condition with minor scratches on the surface but the mirror is otherwise quite good. It has a small chip at the bottom, but it doesn't show when the mirror is held upright. The brass is wonderful and has no breaks or repairs. Fine antique for your vanity. Thanks for looking.
