1923

As we were moving my sister in law into her apartment a few weeks ago my father in law stumbled upon this mirror.  I wish I had taken a before picture.  It wasn't in the greatest shape but I never (well almost never) turn down free.  It just needed a quick paint job.  It was nothing fancy just kind of an ordinary mirror but I liked the detail at the top and I noticed that it was particularly heavy for being the size that it was.  As I was taking it apart to paint it I noticed a stamp on the back.  It's a little hard to read but it says "May 29th, 1923".  How cool is that?  Almost 100 years old.  I guess that's why it's so heavy, they don't make things like they used to.  I was going to take it to my booth but decided to keep it for now, I kind of like having a piece of history in my house.  


It's hard to see in the pictures but because it's so old there are a lot of imperfections in the mirror, almost reminds me of mercury glass, which I love.







found any cool treasures lately?
