From the 1800s, this old antique mirror will become the focal piece of your dining room, bedroom, mantel... anywhere she sits. Empire vanity mirrors were popular with both men and women as they conducted personal tasks such as shaving, brushing/arranging hair and dressing back in the day.

This item was made with mahogany stained wood and wood veneers. The glass mirror obviously shows silvering loss which adds charm and character, in our opinion. Manufacturer unknown.

Absolute perfection.

Better Than the Photo

My shaving mirror with it's ghostly reflection was a Christmas present to me. I love the smoky shadows and history it has brought to my home. My treasure was packed and shipped with care and it arrived in perfect condition. I'm very pleased with this wonderful company and I will be purchasing from them again and again. Thank you!
