French 19th Century Brass Bistro Mirror
Dimensions: 65 1/2″H x 36 1/2″W x 1 1/2″D
A brilliant brass bistro mirror from 19th century France. The moulded frame has been covered in large sheets of brass, shaped to fit the frame perfectly. In the photograph, the mirror has been recently polished. As brass does, over time it will patinate and acquire an antiqued, aged look. The brass frame surrounds a large plate of mercury glass, which is original to the mirror. This glass is exceptionally well-aged, with evenly scattered foxing and sparkles found throughout. c.1880.
