Antique or vintage hand mirror decorated with deep teal colored feathers! This is a very interesting item. It is a heavy, quality, beveled oval-shaped mirror with a wooden handle. The perimeter of the mirror front and back has been adorned with the pretty feathers and given a silky ribbon adornment on the back. I'm not sure when it was made - it does show considerable age. I can see just a very tiny bit of the back of the mirror on the reverse, and it is metal. Under all those feathers I don't know what condition it is in - it's possible someone may want this to restore it to the original condition but I can't say what condition the mirror is underneath the decorations. Measurements: measuring from the top of the feathers it is about 16" long (height without the extra height of the feathers is about 12" long). The wood handle alone is almost 7" long. The width of the mirror is about 11". Condition (on a scale of poor, fair, good, very good, excellent: Very good. The wood of the handle shows wear.
When problems happen! 1) One thing that comes up occasionally is that a purchase is received and it isn't the size you imagined it would be. Before purchasing check the measurements in the listing, being sure it is the size you want...use a ruler to envision the true size...relying on just the photos can be misleading. 2) And please, if you have any problem whatsoever with your purchase just send me a message - before or after the sale. I'll respond quickly to assist you. I want you to be thrilled with your purchase...I want you as a return customer.

I do accept returns on most of my items...but some things are either too large, or too fragile, to safely withstand the handling of shipping back and forth...each listing will state whether that item can be returned or not.

I do try very hard to represent my items as accurately and honestly as possible - damage and shortcomings too. Most of my goods are used, whether they are merely older, or vintage, or a fabulous antique - but they are used. Keep this in mind when considering a purchase - there will be imperfections and signs of wear to one degree or another. So unless I say the item is new, pristine, or mint - it's used. These items have a history, and actually that is why I love them!
I add new finds to my listings every few days, often daily, so check back often and have a look around...you never know what the Gypsy Lady will bring!
HAPPY SHOPPING EVERYONE!
