Condition and Details of Restoration:

This mirror is in generally untouched original condition, with some old repairs (visible from the rear photograph detail), most likely carried out by the firm represented on the paper label to the rear. As would be expected, there is some minor foxing to the mirror plate. The frame is attractively rubbed in places, allowing the red bole layer to show through.
