It has elaborate decoration as seen in my photos. The large Chinese characters depict Long life and Happiness and there are many symbols of longevity, such as the Crane, Bundles of rice, etc. It appears that the makers name might have been removed from this mirror. It is in great condition other than the possible missing signature and has no dings, dents or repairs. It is approximately 11" high and 7 3/4" wide. It was made about the turn of the century or possibly earlier.
