This listing is for a lovely antique hand mirror with Sterling Silver heavily chased repousse Love's Dream design made by Unger Brothers, Newark NJ, c. This design is one of the most sought after of the Art Nouveau period with it's elaborately embossed design of a female and cherub floating in clouds in the center top and a grim faced Medusa with snakes in her hair embossed on the lower handle. Although we did not find a Sterling stamp or maker's stamp on the silver, the silver tests to be of Sterling quality and this design is a well-known Unger Brothers design. The frame is in very good condition on top with no noted flaws although there are some minor dents and dings around the rounded sides. This is commonly found on silver hand mirrors as they were routinely used and are over 100 years old.
The mirror is beveled with no scratches although the silver backing does have cloudiness and could use being restored. Measures 9 1/4" long with the round silver top measuring 4 3/4" and the mirror itself measuring 4 in diameter.
