Estate Sale Find-Antique Pier Mirror

Hello everyone! Back in May I started working for a Garage Sale and Estate Sale Company, which I love might I add, and I have been finding some great treasures here and there. So I wanted to show you my latest antique furniture find. When I saw this beauty (the pier mirror) I knew I had to have it because it matches my antique chairs. It probably dates to the 1870's or so.


Here is a closer look at the detail of the finial and the ebonizing which I always seem to be attracted to.
If you want to see more ebonized beauties just click here.


And below is the cute little marble top shelf in which I placed this sweet little married cherub piece. It used to have a small clock on top but was removed at some point, so I added the little cranberry glass piece to it for what I call, the perfect little married piece. I think she likes it there on that shelf. :-)


And below that is another shelf! I like shelves because that means more space to put more things! Yay!
I added my antique German porcelain shoe to that shelf. Haven't decided what will go on the shelves on either side of it though.


I really like my new piece there between the front two windows BUT I had my antique pier table there so guess what? Yep, I had to move it elsewhere.



And that meant getting rid of something or moving that other IT somewhere else. If you remember, I originally had the 1909 upright piano there...


but I sold it and the two gold chairs. And then I bought the dollhouse and antique desk that it sat on...


and just last week I sold it too! I know I sell a lot of things. Oh well! The house was just way too big so I decided to sell it to a friend of mine who is "really" into miniature dollhouses. So then I had the space to move the pier table to. Even though I was saving that space for the perfect etegere! Oh my goodness, does the madness never end?!


Happy Fall and thanks so much for your visit!

    But you sold your doll house!!!!!!!!!! I loved seeing how you were always decorating it and then posting so we could see it.
    I need to be more like you and get rid of some stuff I have had for ages and bring in some new, just cant keep bringing stuff in and have room for it all.
    My son in law works for an estate sale company and loves the work , always traveling and learning so much about antiques.
    I think your Autumn porch decoration is adorable!
