New @ Something Vintage: Guilded Mirror with Amazing Patina

A couple of weeks ago, the Something Vintage ladies scored this amazing mirror from a rowhouse here in Washington DC.  It had been hanging above the fireplace in the house since it was built, according to the owner, making it at least 100 years old.  The thing that immediately drew us to this piece is the incredible patina.  People pay top dollar for faux-distressed mirrors like this, but we have the real thing.

I can see this being hung in a lounge area at a wedding, as a backdrop to a dessert table, or as the focal point of a mirror collage.  I'd love to hear other creative ideas---shoot me an email at to tell me yours.
