Here is a fine quality antique English Victorian flame mahogany cheval mirror, circa 1860, in excellent working condition. Incorporating a moulded mahogany frame, the rectangular mirror can be adjusted to suit your preferred viewing angle. The back of the mirror retains its original backboard. The mirror has been replaced; therefore, the glass is in good condition, free from scratches, foxing or marks. Turned knobs, which control the angle adjustment when turned, also serve to secure the mirror frame to the turned side supports. The side supports also boast elegant turned finials to the top. The vertical supports raise up from a sturdy base, which features a shaped stretcher. The base is raised on shaped cabriole legs, which terminate on the original brass & mug castors.
The cheval mirror boasts a rich brown mahogany colour. As it boasts the original polish, it has a fantastic colour and patination; this can only be achieved through age and years of care and cleaning it has received.
