Learn about Toilet Mirror

A small, framed mirror on a stand or supporting brackets, usually placed on a chest of drawers or toilet table, as a looking glass. There are many variants the frames may be square, rectangular, half round, oval or shield shaped. The mirror brackets usually stood on a platform base, sometimes with a marble top, and often with small drawers for jewellery beneath. The angle of the mirror could be adjusted either by tightening small wooden knobs on the brackets or else by brass thumbscrews. The supporting brackets during the Georgian and early Victorian periods were often turned posts, but during the mid-19th century Rococo revival they could be elaborately scrolled and carved. Collectors will also come across many small round mirrors, often framed in brass on an adjustable stand, which were generally used as shaving mirrors.
