Charming – Vintage Antiqued Mini Copper Hand Mirror with Comb Set Reviews

Pros:
-Beautiful!
-Very detailed work
-Only one sharp edge found on the mirror's handle, and this only after a very careful inspection. Great quality for this price!
-Charming, old-timey appearance.
-The packaging survived Air Mail, also, and could very easily be used as a gift box.
-Looks more expensive than it is
-
Cons:
-The peacock on the mirror was of a different style than the one pictured. Pretty, but not quite as pretty as the one pictured
-The mirror itself is quite small, and doing any real make-up or hairdressing with this would be painstaking
-The comb is not very ergonomic for adult hands
Other:
-Great size for children, especially for princess-games
-Look gorgeous on your dressing table, even if you never used them!
-Might be used as props for a fantasy/historical setting, if you ignore the shimmery mirror behind the peacock filigre
-The mirror's pretty heavy, small children could break it easily, I think
Bottomline:
I bought it just because it looked nice, and I was not disappointed. If you have any use for old-timey looking dressing table handmirror and comb, BUY!
I'm sure these would make a great gift for anyone into fantasy, steampunk, the Victorian Age or peacocks.
