The Museum’s collection includes a bronze mirror with wood backing set in a silver-gilt frame (Late Classical or Hellenistic, 4th–3rd century B.C.). The silver-gilt openwork band that surrounds the mirror is decorated with herons and other birds among palmettes, flowers, and leaves. Our detailed earrings were developed from the decorative motifs on this rare ancient mirror frame.
Silver overlay, with agate beads. Lightly antiqued finish. Hook and eye closure. Pendant: 1 5/8'' diam.; chain: 18''L.
