A fancy ornate brass oval frame having trefoil cartouches with leaves and edged with beading encircle the mirror held up by easel stand whose stretcher is detached from the frame.

Please note that we have painted out the glass mirror - not to hide anything other than the photographer.

Many similar frames are available in iron, but these cast brass frames are a prize. Although finding one is a treat, a pair is a special one...

A pair of black papier mache wine bottle coasters, each beautifully hand painted with a colorful bird within a red and gilt cartouche. The form is quite rare, with more common versions made of silver or silver plate.

The coasters are 6 1/4" in diameter and 1/2" in depth...
