Stunning antique 19th century Venetian glass wall mirror circa 1840-70. Measures 51 inches high and 22.75 inches wide. Very good original condition, retaining its original thick hand-hewn single back board. There is one minor line crack at top, along with some old silver loss, and one of the period replaced top left small mirror. All commensurate with its age. This mirror softly reflects light to create an elegant, mellow, romantic glow, something only an fine antique mirror can do, unlike the more garish modern reproductions.
