Superb hardwood and mother of pearl 19th Century toilet mirror. The toilet mirror is of a practical size having a bevel edge mirror set into an ornate hardwood frame set with mother of pearl, depicting foliage and figures. The base of the frame is square set making it stable; it does not have a tilt facility as it is believed to have started its life as a table screen with inset silk embroidery. (As recently seen on ITV Dickenson Real Deal). Although the bevel mirror is an historic replacement it does show signs of age. The hardwood frame inlay has references to the number three and figures from mythology making it probable that this could have been a marriage piece as three means life. This is an attractive and striking toilet mirror an interesting piece to enhance any dressing table with a message of good wishes.
