Note: It is indeed rare to find a mirror of this period retaining not only the original mirror plate but also the original verre églomisé panel.

Verre églomisé is a French term referring to the process of applying both a design and gilding onto the rear face of glass to produce a mirror finish. The name is derived from the 18th-century French decorator and art-dealer Jean-Baptiste Glomy, who was responsible for its revival. Wikipedia

Delivery in the UK mainland is included in the marked price.
