July 1, 2010Our New – Old – Thrift Store Mirror!
By Sara In AZ
Mom and I were out last week hitting up all the thrift stores and we came across this old mirror.
At first I was unsure if I wanted to get it because I am such a cheap-o sometimes and the mirror was $35 bucks. But, Mom and I decided it was pretty darn cool, so we brought it home. Let me tell you this mirror is HEAVY – it is solid wood and it weighs at least 30 pounds (though I have absolutely no idea what kind of wood it is) and it is BIG at over 3 feet tall. You can probably tell the planter on the bottom was used, and it definitely is copper. All of the rods surrounding the mirror are also copper. My guess on the year of manufacture for this mirror would be early to mid 60’s.
Here is a close up of the planter.

And here is a picture of the manufacturer sticker on the back.
I tried looking Margrieve Mirrors up on the web with no luck. Has anyone out there ever heard of Margrieve Mirrors?
