This mirror was packed very well in two layers of bubble wrap. Hanging the mirror wasn't a problem. It's recommended by the manufacturer that you hang each side and not use picture wire on the pre-installed "D" hooks. So, you *must* use a level (not included). The "silver" part of the mirror's design has a slight relief-style design. After I hung the first mirror, I noticed two slight nicks in the silver. If hanging above a fireplace, you won't likely notice any possible imperfections. That said, the other mirror looked just fine.
