The whole of the front of the mirror is glass, the central oval is mirrored and the decorative border is fired on to the back of the glass.

The scenes are full of romantic Italian neoclassical imagery . Here we have heavenly blue skies with soaring birds, beautiful maidens, flower garlands, musical instruments and of course a host of cherubs and fairies.
The mirror has a substantial mahogany back. It has a stand that has a slot to take it should the mirror be hung on a wall by the two loops.
The mirror is in good antique condition. It has a few nibbles to the corners (please see photos) and one of the four glass studs is missing but this does not detract.
