Description

Mirror has been in the same family for at the least 125 years, and possibly longer. Family who owned it lived in Virginia. Mirror is exactly 101 and half inches in height and 47 and a fourth inches in width. Is constructed of a decorative gold painted ornate pattern molded plaster. It does have some places in the decorative portion that have had to be repaired in the past. There are also places were the paint has come off and is noticeable upon close inspection. It could stand to use a new coat of gold paint on the frame. The mirrored glass itself is in excellent condition and shows no cracks, or scratching. The back of the mirror has wooden planked style board running horizontally down the backside, and the have been nailed into what looks like the inner wooden frame for the mirror. Not only is mirror very large, it is extremely heavy, as it takes four men to safely move it. Estimated weight is around 200lbs.

Provenance

Came from an estate sale, belonged to the parents of a woman who if was still living would be 102 years old today. Do believe it came from Virginia.
