Looking for parts for antique mirror and/or information

See pictures. I don't know the origin of this mirror, or it's date. I'd be interested if anyone knows anything about it. As you can see the screw (for the part the mirror tilts on) is broken. Anyone have any ideas were I could find a replacement? Any help or information is appreciated.

It doesn't quite match yours, but here's one from Van Dyke's.

And here's another from Constantine's:

Don't throw away the old hardware if you replace it! Keep it with the mirror.

Your mirror is late Victorian, probably 1880s, in a style sometimes called ball-and-spindle. It looks like it's either walnut or mahogany.

Here is a link that might be useful: Mirror supports from Van Dyke's
