Antique silver plated hand mirror: floral design
A stunning antique repoussé hand mirror with a floral design.
With a beveled glass inside the outer frame is embossed with floral elements. The hand begins with growing wildflowers that tower upwards to a central, blank cartouche flanked by further flowers and leaves. The top of the mirror displays filigree while underneath the cartouche we can see a trio of flowers. The flowers are entwined with vines and a variety of blooms are present.
The mirror as a whole is both solid and heavy with the glass in good condition for its age with some faint scratching/cloudiness and a minor patch of de-silvering on the center bottom.. These elements can be seen in the images - As an antique these effects of wear are to be expected.
There is a slight rattle and the outer edge displays wear: it has a very minor denting on the joined edges.
