The other reviews state that the frame is black. It is not truly black in my opinion but it is darker than the typical espresso. I hung this in my guest bath next to an existing espresso shelf. The mirror is darker but it still matches. It's not obvious unless you really examine it. The mirror is a good mirror. Accurate reflection and no warping or foggy spots like a cheap mirror. I think the price is great. If you need an extra small/medium mirror and don't want to spend a lot, I would recommend this. I was surprised at how difficult it was to find a decent mirror! I searched around for quite awhile and was pleased when this arrived.

I bought two of these mirrors, separately. Opened the first one, it was scratched, decided to keep the mirror than go through the hassle of shipping and reordering. Be careful when you open the box, the mirror is not secured to the frame, when you lift it out, may fall out if you do not realize that it is unsecured. There design flaws are numerous: The mirror cannot be hung like a picture frame, meaning securing wire to the side of the frame and hanging on the wall with a anchor. There are two separate notches on the side frame, you have to drill precise two holes for the anchors/ studs, making this whole hanging unnecessarily complicated. Next, one mirror came with template and one anchor and the other mirror with none! The holes on the frame are very small, so need small screws, may # 6. Hung the first mirror after careful measurement, checking level, to make sure holes are drilled square. After hanging the mirror, it was very clear the mirror on the wall was NOT level. The screws holes on the mirror frame are NOT level, off by 1/8th of an inch! Frustrating. Having gone through experience with the first mirror, I measured the screw holes on the second mirror, lo and behold it was off again by 1/8th of an inch, this time on the opposite side. The genius of cheap Chinese manufacturing!
I had been searching for mirrors and prices were outrageous on them. When i came upon this mirror, I couldn't believe what it was priced. I needed two for my bathroom and decided to take a chance they weren't going to be really to cheap looking. Boy what a surprise when they arrived!! They were far from being cheap looking. They were beautiful heavy mirrors. I still can't believe how beautiful and inexpensive these mirrors were. I would totally recommend this mirror for purchase.

Doing this review from memory I hung this up a while back. After looking at the photo I called them on the phone to see if you can hang it the other way L-R as well as Up /Down like in the photo & they assured me that I can hang it the other way L-R as well But, it had some flaws nothing major I returned it & I got another one anyway & it looks ok! One bad thing there was only slots on the back to hang it up long way like in the photo & I couldn't hang it up L-R like they said so rather then return it again one thing I did was I went to a craft store like "Michaels" & got a kit with some Hooks & wire & measured & screwed in the hooks & attached the wire Then hung it on the wall, so it’s now L-R It Not the best but it does the job. I hung it up in my Bathroom & everyone who sees it likes it I did buy some other stuff from them in the past & it is what it is, if you don’t mind re-configuring thing a bit & you handy w/ some tools or a bit creative it does the job looks nice once it’s get it all put together. So yes so I would recommend it.
