C2Oth BRASS RAILWAY MIRROR
TWIN ARMED, POSITIONABLE VANITY MIRROR.
This characterful vanity or shaving mirror is believed to have been made in the Edwardian era for use in a railway sleeper carriage. Held on a sturdy 4 point wall mount on articulated pivoting brass arms the brass has been left patinated, as found, but could be polished to a high shine if required. There are the feint remains of a registered patent number on the mirror support bracket.
The hardwood and brass framed mirror (21cm/8inch diameter) is held on a sturdy, ratcheted vertical adjuster and also pans freely left to right; the combined mechanism giving complete freedom of placement and positioning reaching to either the left or the right by up to 22 inches from the central mounting position.
A very useful, flat-plane mirror with almost no foxing the mirror itself has a tiny hairline crack to its edge just visible next to the brass frame, this is completley stable.
DIMENSIONS: 21cm diameter mirror.
2x 23cm brass arms.
CONDITION: Very Good
