Second mirror - matching finish to the other, slight inward bowing to the bell husks to the left and both side of bell husks have broken away from the sides of the main mirror of the main mirror frame at 10 and 2 o'clock, some rubbing scattered throughout where gilding is lost is shows the white gesso beneath, old splits at 12, 3, 6 and 9 o'clock, plates look old but are probably not original, overall these need some cosmetic attention but are essentially in honest order.
