This is a pretty antique English Art Deco rectangular shaped wall hanging mirror, circa 1930, in satisfactory, original condition, given its age. There are nominal old use marks, but nothing significant considering the age of the item. The mirror retains its original glass, which is in satisfactory overall condition, with signs of foxing and other marks (please see photos). “Foxing” is a term used to describe silvering in antique mirrors that has deteriorated and turned misty, or appears to have tarnished in areas. Light “foxing” serves to demonstrate the pleasing patina of age. The back of the mirror retains its original backboard, with a replacement metal hanging chain, for safety reasons. This item is well constructed, solid in joint and ready to be used.
