A candle fell on me
Delicious timeworn silver gilt Louis Philippe mirror with cloudy foxed plate Circa 1880. The frame with ribbed motif has a superb patina including historical candle burn with associated wax droplets giving real soul to this item. No doubt a candle was positioned closely to the mirror on the mantel piece to reflect and increase the casting of light into the unelectrified home, but it fell over at some point !!
