Who Wants To See A Antique Mirror!

Last weekend my sister and I took my mom for the first time to yard sales around our fair city. My mom is not use to doing this, so she was in a bit of shock when she saw what people where selling. By the end of the day she enjoyed herself and she scored BIG when she found this lovely oval antique mirror, which she only paid $2.50 for. When I took the mirror apart, I found markings on the frame and the mirror. The frame was made by a company call Burwood Product Co, from Illinois and the mirror was made by Toledo Plate Window Glass Co, from Ohio.  The mirror has a few scratches, but other then that everything else looks great.

Here are the before pictures:

The paint on the frame was rubbed off, so I used Rust-Oleum Metallic paint & Primer in Pure Gold
Here are the before:
I love all these details on the frame.

I love this antique mirror and I am so jealous my mom found it first. LOL, I would like to add some glazing, but my mom hasn't see the mirror yet, but rest assure I will get some glazing on this lovely piece. (wink wink) Thank you for stopping by and have a Happy Easter! I LOVE your SWEET comments, so drop me a line.

  7. 2.50 or 250.00 ? How is that a score?

    1. The period after the two doesn't show up well, but its $2.50, so it was a big score.
