Width 46.5cm x Depth 25.5cm (18.25" x 10") & O/All Size of Mirror Frame 30cm x 44.5cm (11.25" x 17.5")
O/All Height 72cm (28.25") & Height to Top of Base 14.75cm (5.75")
This is an antique piece from around 1850-70, so you may expect the mature character & patina that only develops with considerable age, plus minor wear & tear; the glass is probably original and is unsurprisingly pitted (see pictures) but, otherwise, it's in very good, clean & sound restored condition, ready to use in your home.
NB: The Side Table shown in the pictures is not included.
