    Found this at a flea market for $50.00 got home looked it up made from 1930 1940 mid century, its 48 inches round made out of hard plastic, the people who owned it said it was left in a old house they bought still hanging on the wall and hated it, I offered them $25.00 and they thought they screwed me. When I looked it up it was selling for $1,200 I about fell out of my chair I love it its kool. Should I repaint the gold paint or leave it alone?

      Please don't paint it. What's it made from? Can you replace a couple of the pics with ones taken in the natural light, the ones you posted are a bit dark. Oh yes, don't paint it.

      It made of hard plastic back in the 1930' they had name for that hard plastic I think of name right now, I'll take it outside to get better pictures it weighs about 25 to 30 lbs.

      They called it Bakelite, I have a old carnival camera made in 1919 and it's made out of Bakelite, the camera was made for kids it's real small an they really worked

      They have other plastic name they said this mirror was made out of Risen, I haven't looked it up yet I really haven looked on the back of it yet to see if theirs a name or number somewhere, it has 4 screws holding the mirror in with backer to see if that has something on it
