A very strange little mirror.

Pre war manufacture, quite crude work, Solid cast aluminium frame, salvaged mirror glass with one edge bevelled.

the reverse painted with high vis. orange paint

30 cm square + lugs

I can't help feeling that this was made in a rush at the end of the 1930's, the aluminium points towards flight, the orange paint towards airstrips and the size to shaving.

The mould used for the frame looks like a standard 30 cm square victorian bull nose wood shaving mirror frame
