Today I am showing an antique mirror that was given to me many, many years ago when I was a little girl.
I originally did a post on this around a year ago. I thought this would be a great time to bring it out again and see if I can get some info on it.
The lady who gave this mirror to me was an old lady from our church named Minniola Adams. Everyone called her Minnie. I called her grandma. She wasn't my real grandmother but she cared for me when I was young and my mom worked.
I was sick alot when I was little and Minnie was always at the hospital with me, playing card games with me....she was wonderful! Minnie died from a blood infection many years ago and I miss her still today. She left me this mirror and I have held it so close to me.
I have questions though...how old is it? What are it's origins? Just any history about it would be wonderful!
The metal is almost brass like..it's a little heavy. The back of the mirror has a floral motif cross stitch or embroidery. It's covered by glass.
The details are so delicate and intricate. I don't think it was a mass produced item but I don't know.
It measures about four inches long.
If anyone has any information about it I would greatly appreciate it! I don't care what it's worth...that does not matter to me. I would just like to know how old it is.
So that's my Pink Saturday post....
