Gorgeous hand hammered repousse silver vanity hand mirror. This is from Peru in the colonial style and dates to the late 19th or early 20th century. The silver is hammered from a thin sheet and hand cut to fit the wooden backing and protect the mirror. The wood is Andean hardwood – possibly mahogany. There are two pieces of silver … one at the top of the mirror and one fitted to the handle. The silver has two marks on the handle (see photo): PERU and 925. The mirror including handle measures about 5-1/2 x 12-1/2 inches. Excellent condition, with one minor piece of silver missing top right.
