The brass frame features interesting and unique decorations, a combination of handmade and machine-made features. There is raised foliate decoration of seashells and bleeding hearts creating depth and texture. In art, the heart-shaped flowers of the bleeding heart represent strong, unconditional love. The bottom has the traditional hammered effect. The outer edges of the frame are trimmed with a pressed rope pattern. The exterior trim is flat and simple, emphasizing the rectangular shape. The brass sheet continues along the sides to the back. On the reverse is the original antique fiberboard backplate. The quality silver mirror insert is original to the piece and held securely in place behind the frame. It is fully reflective with a beveled edge that adds a sense of depth. To hang the mirror on the wall there is the original antique metal chain which is attached to two metal plates, each screwed to the fiberboard of the back. This mirror is currently installed to hang portrait, but there are old markings on the back of the mirror indicating where to move and screw one of the metal plates if one prefers to hang it horizontally. This antique wall mirror is in very good condition for its age. The antique patina has been preserved. The brass frame is solid with no missing parts or cracks. The brass surfaces feature the original clear lacquer and an attractive warm patina developed over the years adding character, with minor rubbing and surface marks. The original mirror surface is in very good condition, it is very reflective, with no cracks or chips and only minimal surface marks and a few tiny spots of foxing, one of which is slightly more visible (as photographed); all consistent with age and wear and as expected for an antique piece.
