ANTIQUE HEXAGONAL MIRROR – $150

ANTIQUE MIRROR WITHIN A HEAVY WOODEN 8-SIDED FRAME. VERY LITTLE SILVER LOSS ON MIRROR. condition: good –size / dimensions: 22″ HEX

Well, Sparky does have a very nice green lawn. I’m glad this is set outside so we avoided any mirror pron. Too bad no one proof read this. The ad states 8-SIDED right there. I can’t tell if cats were involved or not. Going to have to let this one slide.

  1. Quaint that Spark refers ti ‘silver loss” in regard to the mirroring.
    Had the mirror been silvered with sterling, it would be worth more for the coating.
    Which may explain the putative cost.

    Which is why I’d want assurances–like a materials survey assay–that this mirror was not silvered with mercury.
    Of course that’s likely to reveal that the mirror is silvered with an aluminum coating, or a mylar film.
    Oops.
    Funnier still would be if the mirror is nothing but polished zinc or aluminum with a an acrylic top coating, and having a value of, perhaps $1.50

  2. So, the clunky wood frame, emulating a feline Möbius strip of indeterminate polygonal facets, and five bucks’ worth of backing and picture hanging hardware is worth $144?
    Errr, no, spark.
    You only managed to put four of those dust-catching lumpoids on the thing.

  3. Suitable for any decor–in a fingerhut catalog, maybe.
    And putting a 22 inch hex in the ad seems inapt at best.
    Unless this thing keeps returning to owner like a haunted hawk.
