The primitively made tin plate wall mirror being rectangular with rounded corners and with a beautifully distressed plate to a lead border, the rear and sides clad in the original teal coloured velvet and surviving from the zeniths of the nineteenth century.

The mirror is in as found condition and prove wonderfully decorative, now acting more as a picture than its original purpose.

The general nature and materials used in this mirror suggest it may have been part of the travelling or circus community.

It would look super grouped with other random pieces of wall art.
