I purchased this mirror of kijiji for 50 canadian dollars. I thought she was beautiful. I love antiques and although im sceptical on age this one intrigues me. The mirror and back have been replaced so i know that sets it back on value. But for 50 bucks who cares :) i was wondering if you could help date it and approx value although shes staying on my wall thank you for your time. Also i would like to add that the food is very light and has sponge like holes in some spots

It is fairly new and is probably made of a resin polymer.  But that doesnt matter as it looks good.  you would have to pay 200+ to buy it new.  price these at a glass company and see their prices.

I see these at auctions often but not in as nice a form as yours.

hope this helps.

In regards to American antique, vintage and collectible furniture I can help with wood identification, styles, age, periods, historical coatings, materials, techniques, repair, restoration, refinishing, and value. I do not study mid century and later furniture nor do I deal in lamps, and other smalls. You may ask for values and I will give you current market values, I will not give you 'feel good' values. Understand that there are many factors that contribute to market value. If you want a feel good, unrealistic number, please call a local inexperienced appraiser. It is my desire to help you and in doing so I increase my knowledge as well. For that I thank you.


I have been in the antiques furniture and restoration business and in the sales of antique furniture for 40+ years and have continued my education in the trade attending workshops and seminars by various organizations, institutions, and private collectors.
