The scarce wall or shaving mirror, being rectangular and concave and with a rosewood veneered outer frame over a stained pine backing, the original Georgian plate now beautifully foxed and worn with age, with original integral hanging loop, the whole surviving from the first quarter of nineteenth century England.

Object History

Unknown.

Object Literature

A plus or concave mirror adds positive vergence, to aid the act of shaving for instance, or for that of illusion.

A scarce and highly prized mirror.

Object Condition

There is some light wear to frame commensurate with age, and some attractive foxing to the plate as photographed. It remains entirely original other than the backboard is now lacking.
