Today's cottage style home is all about soft colors, casual vintage character, fresh details and a fun eclectic mix of home accessories. Our genuine shabby white vintage mirror with pink mosaic checks all those boxes!
The chippy white painted frame on this vintage mirror was purchased from an antique shop. Originally mounted on a washstand or boudoir table, the frame has a lovely scalloped shape and has surely seen its share of feminine reflections.
The mosaic inspiration is a tender pink capodimonte orchid from Italy.
Around the edge of the frame is a jumble of vintage floral romance... including assorted hand cut antique china, ceramic tile, glass, mirror, millefiori, vintage baubles, glass gems and more. Truly a one-of-a kind mosaic art with a feminine flair!
Grouted in white sanded grout and sealed for protection. A sturdy hanger is attached to the back of the mirror, which is quite heavy for its size. The original old mirror shows oxidation with darkened areas, spots, scratches and haziness due to age and wear.

- ONE vintage shabby mirror with pink mosaic frame and capodimonte orchid (as shown)
In very good vintage condition considering age of this piece. The painted frame shows areas of surface paint loss, chips, scratches. The glass mirror is slightly loose in frame, and shows areas of discoloration, surface wear and dark spots. The mosaic, created in 2014, remains securely attached to frame. The orchid is very fragile. The inherent qualities of pique assiette mosaics (as shown) is primitive, rustic, imperfect - and may have sharp edges from hand cut ingredients.
