I bought this old mirror many years ago in Florida, from a man in an expensive canal front home by the ocean. The man was relocating to another country for his job, and told me that this belonged to his grandmother who he believed bought it from an antique dealer some years prior, when she got it. It looks great, and I had it hanging in my home in Florida, but it needs a new home now. I built a frame for it for transport, and that's included. MUST PICK UP.

At 50 inches tall and 74 inches wide, it's big, and it would make a statement as a focal point above your fireplace or sofa. I believe that it would look perfect in a stately Georgia home. On each side of the mirror are what appear to be beautifully detailed painted porcelain figurines, of a man and woman locked in an embrace.

On the backside you will see that this mirror seems to be made of wood and is in perfect or near perfect condition (I couldn't find anything wrong with it). I've seen cheap copies of this done in plastic, with poorly detailed figurines, and they were asking nearly $1,500 for them. I also came across another one that is nearly identical to this one, hanging in a gallery (see the last two photos), where they were asking nearly $2,900 for it.

I'd like $850 OBO, but will consider trades for silver, gold, or fire*rms.
