Dee asks: How old is my mirror and what is it worth?
Sorry for the delay on this, I’ve had a hard time logging into my
website, even though it’s posted, I can’t get in the back end to do
work, so I’m sending this via email only for now. It will be posted as
soon as I can get it online.
Your mirror depicts a days work from the harvest to going to town.
These before and after themes were very popular at the turn of the
century. I like that your mirror has beveled glass which means that it’s
of very good quality glass. The beveled edges add strength.
It’s circa 1900-15 although it has the embellishment more familiar with the American Victorian era.
Retail value is $95-$115. These are nice, but not extremely rare, nor were they very expensive when they were made.
