Hello Dee,

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.

Wholesale $45-$60
