Vintage art nouveau mirror: Loves Dream reproduction EPNS
An exquisitely detailed silver plated mirror, a later reproduction of the famous Unger Brothers Lovers/loves Dream design.
The frame is repousse with art nouveau elements, beginning with a figural start to the handle working their way upwards with filigree that flanks the central woman and Cherub design, embracing within the clouds.
The mirror is in fair condition for it's age; showing signs of wear (scratches and minor below surface wear such as mild cloudiness and de-silvering.- can be seen in the image, the de-silvering is locates to wards the bottom near the handle). As a whole the mirror is quite light to hold.
There is a rattle within the frame due to loose elements (most likely the inner remnants of denting) the outer edge displays wear: it has a dent along the top of the frame (can be seen in the images). This item has been lightly cleaned and polished but retains some patina, which is expected due to the age of the item. As an antique these effects of wear are to be expected. This mirror is stamped EPNS and has two other marks but they are not makers symbols and may have been added to try and authenticate itself as it is a reproduction (sneaky!).
All elements can be seen in the photos - however wear can be expected due to age and use.
Perfect as a gift for a vintage beauty lover or to hang as a wall decoration.
Size: 28cm by 15cm.
