Triptych - mirror - wood, mirror-glass, brass/copper - France - First half 20th century - Japanese Style
Beautiful old triptych mirror with Japanese graphics on it. Beautiful drawings with birds and Asian characters.
Heavy quality, given the age it is in good condition. Mirror is weathered here and there, however, which I personally find very beautiful and fitting with the whole. Outside has some damage (2 small cracks and a somewhat light spot; see pictures of the front).
When folding out the mirror you have to guide the pin at the bottom of the right part of the mirror a little to the “hole” where it belongs; pin seems a bit short which makes it easy to come out. Think of this.
On the lock it reads: BREVETE SGDG and below it I seem to see a T and B. Furthermore, on the closure it reads 'patented 4676’ if I am not mistaken.
Dimensions: 30 x 30 cm in folded state. Unfolded the max. width is 60 cm. The smallest mirror is 24 cm wide and 26 cm high. The other (most right mirror) is 26x26 cm.
Pickup in Bilthoven. Shipping possible in consultation with and for the account and risk of buyer.
