Antique wood barley twists make me swoon, the twist and turns and curves are just unbelievable. This antique mahogany barley twist shaving mirror appears to be Victorian, but could also be Edwardian. I've done a bit of research on the maker of this mirror who was from Lanark, Scotland and was possibly born in the mid 1850s.
The last owner placed a label giving some details on this piece, the label is older as it has yellowed and it was written in a mature hand. The wood on the back that secures the mirror in place appears to have been recently re-secured with new framing points. The wood is in remarkable condition.
The only issues I see is the frame around the mirror, where it was pieced together, there is some slight splitting. The mirror itself has some aging including ghosting and some spotting.
The barley twists are a little tacky from having been waxed. Overall this is a lovely piece and it is ready to find its new home. Measures approximately: 28" wide x 25" high x 10 deep. Found at a Brandon, Mississippi estate.
