An early 20th century Edwardian period shield shaped swing mirror. These were used on dressing tables and for other similar roles. This example is of quite narrow section in keeping with the change during this period from the heavy Victorian to the lighter more elegant Art Nouveau. The frame is mahogany and it has little roundels in places and a thin milled channel in the wood for decoration. The swing position is fixed using two brass turn buckles and the frame is canted to slope backwards slightly. A nice elegant example with the original glass.
Mirror original with some black spots from aging and minor foxing. Normal age related wear and aging to the wood. Turn buckles hold the mirror in position. Split line through one of the feet.
