1900 Exposition Universelle, Paris Souvenir Mirror
One of the most lovely and rare pieces I've ever acquired. This hand mirror is a souvenir from the 1900 Exposition Universelle in Paris. It is made of the most beautiful faded mauve/pink velvet, gilt appliques of the Eiffel Tower and "1900," a beveled mirror with just the perfect amount of aging and a inset scenic photo.
Such an ornate and gorgeous mirror. It measures 12" long, 5-1/2" wide and almost 1/2" thick. It appears as if at one time there was a piece of glass covering the photo. Lovely vintage condition. The epidome of French elegance and quite collectible!
