This fabulous mirror is carved, gessoed,and gilded with acanthus leaves, ruffled or beaded inner edges, resting on little scrolled feet. So delightful as well as useful item for your boudoir! Of course you could even hang it on your wall! It has just the right patina and wear! There seems to be some minor repairs, which are age appropriate. The last photo shows the easel back connected by a little brass chain. The mirror seems to be hand cut, and the under paint is ochre boule...

I found this unique antique frame in a Brussels antique fair and knew it would be stunning hanging in a collection of frames or with a mirror. The finish is most likely a replica of the original. It has repaired crack and some loss of plaster in the inside beading, shown at the top left in the photo. I've included a photo of the back which also shows the original hanger.Measures 23 1/2" X 20".

This unusual stool has such lovely patina and design! The fourth half round forming the top has a break as shown in the photo only adding to its charming history. I love these petite stools as a collection stacked on top of each other! As well as it's original purpose, it could be used on top of a table to display another favorite item. So many design possibilities for you to imagine! Measures 12 1/2" X 7 1/2" and 6 1/2" tall

Beautifully carved wooden wallbox, perhaps for candles.It has a wonderful patina and looks like a warm rich leather!I found this in Switzerland and it might be attributed to Brienz, the real source of what is considered Black Forest carvings. It has 2 marks near the front center which almost look like burns, but doesn't detract from it at all...
