Antique Greek Patinated Silver Filigree Hand Mirror w Bronze Handle 19th c


Brand Etsy

This is an antique Greek silver filigree hand mirror with bronze handle. The silver filigree is patinated to match the greenish tone of the bronze handle. I polished a small area of the interior side that is hidden by the mirror to show the silver colour (see last close-up photo). I believe that the original mirror is still in place - note the lime green coloured silvering on the back of the mirror. The piece measures 9 1/2 in height with a width of 4 1/2 at its widest. It is in very good condition except that the glass is missing a bit of silvering in two places and has a chip to the backside edge in one place, visible in the photos. The hand mirror dates to the late 19th century.
This is a rather rare object - not many of these are floating around, wonderful antique from Greece!
