This pretty parclose mirror dates from the eighteenth century. It has a pretty mirrored frame with fatigued gilding. Parclose mirrors have mirrored panes embedded in the frame. This lovely little mirror has heavily aged glass and is more like a work of art than a mirror that is to be used for applying makeup or shaving.
Note: Mirrors have been photographed facing fabric, a technique that reveals any age spots in the glass. In some cases, this may create the appearance of an empty frame, but each mirror is complete except where explicitly stated.
Condition and wear consistent with age and use.
