My resale shop mirror find!
This was in a consignment furniture charity shop. I got it for $54! It had been marked down from $75. This is taking the place of a gold framed rococo mirror that I had taken down, planning to paint it in darker colors to go with my new ORB chandelier. Taking a closer look once home, I saw that it is ÃÂ¼Ã¢ÂÂ thick veneered plywood, not solid wood. Only the frame immediately around the mirror itself is solid wood.
In my mind, I was thinking it was walnut. But I believe now that that was just wishful thinking, as my Jacobean Revival dining room set is walnut. Seeing them side by side, I think the mirror is mahogany. At least the color is reddish.
It may not be the exact same style as my dining room set, but what would be the odds of that?
Any idea how old this might be? It is in perfect condition, other than some cracks in the inlaid oval at the top. I can't believe any of those little projecting bits never got knocked off! The mirror is beveled, with only one small chip/spot in the silvering.
