Good morning, Dakota,

Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.
LaBarge mirrors do not bring nearly the same prices at auction as they do in a retail gallery. Here is a recent auction sale of a slightly smaller mirror that had a much more decorative surround than yours; it did not sell even with an estimate of $200-400

Based on the photographs and information provided, and subject to examination, this is:

A LaBarge mirror, 20th Century
model 1047-B
approximately 41 by 51 inches
$200-400

Please let us know if you have additional items to appraise, and thank you for using Mearto.

There are no cracks in the mirror there seem to be 4 separate pieces of glass on the outer portion of the mirror but you can tell it was made that way, the dimensions are H 40.75 in. x W 51 in. x D 1.75 in.

This kind of mirror sells for $1200 minimum online, please actually find a correct estimate or refund my money. The amount appraised is so far off from other appraisals I feel like the item was not researched correctly

Good morning, Dakota,
I can understand there might be some confusion as to the value assigned to your mirror. The values provided by Mearto are fair market values, for auction purposes, and are based on the recent auction sales of comparable items.
Retail or asking values often vary.
Here are some of the recent LeBarge mirrors that have been sold at auction, which provided the basis for the value I assigned to you mirror:

If you provide the link(s) you reference for the $1200 value, I would be happy to reconsider my value.
