What’s it worth? Appraisal of ornate mirror

Elizabeth asks:

I purchased this mirror at an antique décor store in Lawrenceville, GA about 25 ago.

The measurements are as follows:

Outside custom framing:      36 1/2″ Wide x 27 1/2 ” Long

Mirror inside:                        27″ Wide x 19″ Long

Framework (wood/paint)      4 1/2″ wide x 3 1/3″ long

I also have pictures of the back of mirror, one of the side to tell the thickness also.

Let me know if there is any additional information you may need to help appraise this beautiful mirror.

Thank you

Elizabeth

AW says: Hello Elizabeth, that’s a very beautiful mirror. Unfortunately as the back of this mirror shows, including the wooden piece on the back and the way the back  is finished, we can see that this this is not actually an antique mirror but advantage want it circa mid to Late 20th century. What you’d paid for it back then may have been a fair price, But prices for decorative mirrors have come down quite a bit in the last 15 years,

Retail value: $350
Wholesale: $125-$150
