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?
