Bronze Cheval Mirror #188-37 SOLD

Status: Sold
Description:
Very rare and very early, I believe this bronze dollhouse cheval mirror to be from the 1860's and to be made in France. The framework of the mirror is very heavy and it has its original mirror which was hand cut to fit into the insert in the back. Some of the silvering has worn off the back of the mirror. Very intricate and delicate, shows some unevenness because it is so early, but a beautiful and rare piece. Height to the tippity top is 4 1/2". Shown front and back. Also pictured next to a Victorian dollhouse lady who is 5 1/8" high for size comparison (dollhouse lady is not for sale). Would make a wonderful accessory for an early dollhouse or roombox setting.
