Sweet Vintage Hand Mirror…

When I was much younger, I remember my aunt and uncle gave me an ornate three piece set which included a brush, mirror and comb. It had gold accents to match my bedroom furniture.  I always felt so fancy when I would use them.  So when I came across this small hand held mirror that was reasonably priced ($8.00) I picked it up and didn’t hesitate to bring it home.

I love that the mirror is in tact with just a few visible discoloration on the edging. The details on the handle remind me of a gorgeous old silver spoon!

 

Thinking it will go somewhere in my Master Suite, perhaps on the Vintage Buffet I found at Second Saturdayz recently?

What a perfect mirror! Even better that it brings back fond memories of your childhood - I love it when I find items that have some nostalgia to them. And $8.00 is a steal! Whenever I find vintage vanity mirrors, they are always over-priced! :( Anyway, have a blessed day!

XOXO's,
Jessie

My Mother gave me a set as you described. I still have it, but the silver case came apart from the brush and I need to glue it back on.

I love this brush! The handle is so pretty! I have one somewhere that was my mother-in-laws. I need to find it! Very lovely.
