Empire Revival Mirror, with the work completed
This stately mirror came to us some time ago in very sad repair. During a family move, it had fallen off of the back of a truck. The original mirror broke and the wooden frame became scuffed all over, lost 1 leg, the corners came apart, and there were minor repairs to do throughout. We have done our best to put this mirror back to rights. We were even able to leave the original finish in place! To do this, we had to color match all the repaired areas, and areas that had become scuffed from the fall. Then we applied one layer of finish to the entire piece to even everything out and give it a nice luster.
