This large, early 20th-century hand mirror is set in a fine hardwood frame decorated with mother-of-pearl inlay of flowering vines. The handle is decorated with plum blossoms and a bat with outstretched wings, a symbol of joy and happiness. Each piece of shell is unique in color and texture with a glimmering, iridescent finish, making it a one-of-a-kind decorative material.

From the collection of Frances and Gary Comer.

One crack to wooden frame due to age. Minor losses to inlay.

Elizabeth Krueger | Elizabeth Krueger Design

“PAGODA RED was extremely supportive in helping to pull accessory options together for the Lake Forest Showhouse. After providing them with details and our vision on how we were looking to finish our space, Laurene helped curate options that made it easy for us to edit and finalize. It's also no surprise that the unique pieces we used in our showhouse space were some of the first to sell.”
