VINTAGE MIRROR

MY GREAT GRANDMOTHER'S MIRROR



When my Paternal Grandmother died.  My father inherited this mirror.

I always admired it when I was a child.  After my father passed away in November 2001.  My mother gave me the MIRROR. 


The MIRROR is a Victorian cast metal mirror with two candle holders.

My father was born in 1917 and the MIRROR  was in the family since the 1890's





I  love the detail on the MIRROR and it is just a treasure to me.

Today I am joining Cindy @ My Romantic Home for Show and Tell Friday
and

for A Few of my Favorite Things Saturday

Thank you for joining me @ My Cozy Corner

  4. That is a real treasure. Even more so because of your family history with it.

  6. That looks familiar! I bought an old metal mirror like yours from a neighbor's garage sale 2 years ago. Mine is rectangle but just as ornate and the same color metal - perhaps it's as old? I am fixing up my family room and it will hang on the wall in there.
