Antique Magnifying Hand Mirror with Folding Swivel Handle - Vintage Celluloid and Metal Mirror with French Rococo Style Portrait
This antique magnifying mirror likely dates from the 1920s. It has a swivel handle which can be folded down into a more compact size. The round mirror is mounted on black-painted metal; the other side of the frame features a portrait of a young woman coiffed, hatted and dressed in the French Rococo style. The print is mounted under celluloid and surrounded by a painted black border. It must be held at very close range in order to view the magnification. Overall dimensions are 9 in. long with the handle extended x 5 in. in diameter. There are scuffs and scratches on the black paint. Lovely addition to the French-inspired vanity or dressing table. The mirror is in good condition and held in by the border but when you move it around you may be able to hear the mirror shift a bit but overall it seems stable.
