Rectangular, antique Venetian mirror with layered frame, circa 1840. The outer strips of the frame are simply bevelled and the inside strips have a dainty scallop cut edges while the central panel is decorated with a delicate etched design of vine leaves and grapes. This central panel is angled inwards, away from the camera, which is why this design is not showing well on the main photographs, but can be seen clearly in the close-up shots. All the joins in the frame are secured with small glass flower or leaf shaped pieces held with little glass flower-topped screws. There is a little age in the frame and at the base of the original, bevelled, central glass which gives an excellent reflection. All the glass is mercury which has lovely sparkles and dates this mirror's manufacture before 1845.
