Very good original condition. The mirror plates have darkened with age and have some losses to silvering. The ripple moulded decoration is in generally very good condition but has a few small areas of chipping and wear. The plain moulding around the outer edge of the frame has been replaced along the top and also to a corner on the left side.
An attractive mirror; the engraved decoration is especially fine. "In response to your inquiry, we are pleased to provide you with a general report of the condition of the property described above.
