I found this in a thrift shop today. It was in a glass case that looked like it hadn't been opened or the contents touched for 20 years.

This was EIGHT DOLLARS. Can you believe it? I'd say it was a great buy! The handle has been broken and maybe mended or maybe it is just a superficial crack. I just can't tell. The beveled mirror shows some signs of age but the luna moth on the back is just beautiful.

I'm thinking this is mid 1800s, maybe Civil War era, but I don't know. No identifying marks on the piece that I can see. Anyone have information they'd like to offer up? Thanks for looking!
