Barbola Mirror - Antique English Country Cabbage Rose Dressing Table Tri-Fold Mirror. This listing is for a gorgeous vintage English Cabbage Rose "Barbola" dressing table mirror with hand painted gesso floral decoration on a very rare tri-fold mirror. These lovely mirrors were produced in the 1930's. Each mirror is unique in it's beautiful aged appearance and many shapes and sizes. Some of these mirrors were sold as kits for the individual to put together and paint, and some were produced to sell completed.

More info:
This vintage mirror is an exceptional example of "Barbola" shabby chic charm. It features three beautiful mirrors, each with a beveled edge, mounted on a painted wooden frame with a gesso flower crown. The floral border is in good condition with hand enameled gesso flowers with beautiful coloration in shades of rosy red, soft pink, blue flowers with yellow accents and green leaves. Each of the mirrors sit on small ball feet. The center mirror stands just under 18 1/2" tall, and is 8" wide, and the two side mirrors are each 13 1/2" tall and 6" wide. The border has remarkably few stress cracks typically found on these old gesso items. There is a small amount of gesso missing from each of the ends of the smaller mirrors (see fourth pic). All mirrors have a nice beveled edge and is in excellent condition with a few minor spots, but no major chips or cracks. The back is in excellent condition as well. This gorgeous mirror is one of the finest that I will be listing on Etsy.
