Item specifics

Seller notes: It comes to you in overall Very Good Condition, especially for something of this age. The only mentionables, The silver backing of the mirror is 99.44% good - there are only a few very small imperfections in the mirror - there are a few places around the inside and outside of the trim of the mirror that have some pieces of gesso (plaster) chipped off as you would expect with something as old as this, as well as some wear. Also, as with a lot of old mirrors, there are a few small black marks near the top , and the backing paper and cardboard are very delicate and "could" be replaced, but the mirror is held in place fairly securely by all the small nails in the frame. It comes to you in otherwise Very Good Condition, with no other issues.

ANTIQUE MEDITERRANEAN GESSO GILDED ORNATE WOOD 19 CENTURY 13O YEAR OLD MIRROR

Up for your consideration is this really nice antique Mediterranean style gesso gilded ornate wood frame 19th century 130 year old mirror.

  • FEATURES:Made out of wood with a gesso (plaster) Mediterranean leafing style design on the top "handle" and the very bottom part of this 130 year old mirror. The handle looks like the leaves are coming together to form a wreath, and the shape is an almost kidney shape where the middle curves in. Along the rest of the frame it is somewhat contoured with several fine lines, or ridges. The back has the original cardboard liner, but the vast majority of the paper backing/cover is gone. The only thing that remains is along the outer edges. There are several different types of nails that hold this mirror into the frame, some look like they come from at least 3 different time periods. There are signs on this that just can't be "faked" or duplicated without the passage of many many decades of time and looks very aged. There is an eyelet screw on each side of the mirror with 4 thin braided cords attached for hanging. By looking at this, it looks like the handle was hand-carved out of wood, as it looks very primitive with no uniformity, even the two back support wedges that hold the handle onto the mirror are very different in size.

  • ADD. INFO: Based on the way this mirror was made, you can pretty much be sure - there were not a lot of these made.

  • INCLUDED: The actual antique Mediterranean style 19 century 130 year old mirror pictured.

  • NOT-INCLUDED: Your awesome wall to hang this up on.

  • SIZE: At the hips of the mirror, it measures about 26" wide x 21" tall.

  • COLOR:Antiqued gold/bronze

  • TYPE:Antique Mediterranean 19 century 130 year old mirror

  • CIRCA:Based on the condition of the finish and the way it was made and the information we acquired, it is believed to be in its original state (finish) from the 1880's This was purchased from an estate sale and the elderly lady said it was handed down from her grandmother to her mother to her and that her grandmother originally got it new in the 1880's.

  • COUNTRY: USA

  • MATERIAL:Wood and gesso(plaster)

    You really like the thing, but not so much the price...

    I find cool stuff, do some research and list it for what I think it's worth. Sounds pretty simple but sometimes not. So if this is something you really like but its a bit more than you had hoped to pay, then be sure to watch this because I can't send it to the bank, and if it ends without a buyer chances are real good I will drop the price and re-list it until it does sell! Two things for sure - it will get sold sooner rather than later, and that's better for both of us.

    International Buyers

    Our zip code is 60041 We will ship to most locations around the world using Priority Mail, insurance and delivery confirmation included. Unfortunately I can not ship using first class international because there is no delivery confirmation or insurance available, and ebay rules require both. "Import Duties", "Tariffs" and "Taxes" are NOT included in the item price or shipping charges. These charges are imposed and collected by your country and are your responsibility. Please check with your country's customs office to determine what these additional costs (if any) will be prior to bidding/buying. These charges are normally collected by your customs office when you pick the item up or upon delivery – please do not confuse them with shipping charges, they are not. I can NOT declare the value on the "Customs Forms" lower than it sold for or mark items as "gifts".

    I take a great deal of pride in my feedback rating and never want you surprised by anything you get from me. PLEASE If there is ever an issue, all I ask is that you give me an opportunity to address it BEFORE leaving feedback.
