Here is a little project for a family member. We were at a private museum and I overhead someone say they would sure like to have a mirror like that. Knowing they do not have the resources to even think about a garage sale deal and knowing their long term interest in “old things”, I took two pictures and made this mirror from them. I did change the proportions from nearly square to a Golden Rectangle making it more friendly to modern narrow places. I couldn’t determine from the original, but it might have been a dresser mirror or wash table mirror held by the sides of the mirror. I squared up the back so a replacement mirror would not have difficult custom cuts. The mirror is backed by 1/8th inch Masonite all held in place with a rubber tape quarter round molding whose teeth are pressed into a groove. Very clean and solid.
