Welcome to Antiques & Moore! THIS LISTING IS FOR AN UNUSUAL AND LARGE "HEART" SHAPED ART NOUVEAU PERIOD STERLING SILVER VANITY/DRESSER MIRROR WITH HEAVY RETICULATED AND CHASED DESIGN, ENGLISH HALLMARKS, c. THE SILVER MIRROR FACING IS IN VERY GOOD ESTATE CONDITION WITH A COUPLE OF MINOR BREAKS IN THE DESIGN AND A COUPLE OF SMALL DENTS IN THE CARTOUCHE. OVERALL, THE CONDITION IS AS EXPECTED FOR THE TYPE OF PIERCED DECORATION REFLECTING MINIMAL SIGNS OF WEAR COMMENSURATE WITH NORMAL WEAR.

THE SILVER IS MOUNTED ON A WOODEN BACK WITH WOODEN EASEL FOR SUPPORT. THE HINGE IS GOOD, HOWEVER, THE BAR THAT CONNECTS THE TWO PARTS OF THE HINGES IS MISSING AND A WIRE HAS BEEN THREADED THROUGH THE HINGES TO OPERATE THE EASEL. THIS WOULD BE AN EASY CORRECTION, IF SO DESIRED.

THE WOODEN BACKING HAS BEEN STRIPED OF ITS VELVET BACKING AND NEEDS REPLACING. ALSO THE VELVET BACKING THAT IS BEHIND THE SILVER FACE ALSO NEEDS REPLACING AS IT HAS BEEN WORN OVER THE YEARS WITH THE POLISHING OF THE SILVER.

THE SILVER DECORATION HAS FINE DETAILS AND OVERALL "HEART" SHAPE. THE FANCY CARTOUCHE AT THE TOP HAS 3-LETTER MONOGRAM "C P T". HALLMARKS ARE FOUND JUST BELOW THE BOTTOM OF THE MIRROR GLASS IN LOWER RIGHT OF SILVER. HALLMARKED FOR "LONDON, STERLING", DATE LETTER FOR 1906 AND MAKER'S INITIALS "WC" FOR WILLIAM COMYNS. THE FRAME MEASURES 14 1/2" LONG AND 10 1/4" WIDE.

THE EXPOSED HEART SHAPED MIRROR MEASURES 9" LONG AND 7 3/4" WIDE. TOTAL WEIGHT IS 2.6 POUNDS. THE MIRROR IS BEVELED AND IS IN VERY GOOD CONDITION REFLECTING ONLY VERY MINOR SIGNS OF USE.
