Tiny Early "Fragment" Mirror

New England, ca. 1820. Sweet miniature, with original silvered glass, and dry surface on the mitered, molded frame. The glass is no longer reflective due to the elements over time impacting the silvered back, yet the original glass adds much character. Note the tiny dimensions of just 2 3/8 inches long x 1 3/8 wide. 200+ years ago silvered glass was so expensive that even tiny fragments from broken larger panels were made into mirrors. Retains collection number on back of Ted and Carole Hayward.
