As others have said, this IS a very nice mirror that adds elegance to your décor. My initial problem was that the framing was WAY too dark - really almost black all around. I expected a little more 'mottling' in terms of gold with darker undertones. It is not that. It is very dark brown (bronze) and almost black. I was lucky because I just wanted it to lean up above a mantle, i.e. it didn't have to be hung. So I had a few days to live with it. Because I did like the style, I decided to try my hand at lightening it up. I went to Michael's and got a little vile of gold leaf paint and painted it only on the 'bamboo' looking part of the frame leaving the inner border alone. It worked miraculously. Now I'm happier with it. Just know to expect a very dark frame with zero gold accents. P.S. I'm not at all crafty and I really didn't know what I was doing, but I knew not to use a brush. I knew I'd use a very small sponge on a stick and that's what made it all work.
This exquisite mirror is made by Uttermost, a high end designer with products advertised on many designer sites, Horchow Collection, etc. The quality is exceptional and the Overstock price is the best available. I searched high and low for the perfect mirrors for my newly remodeled master bath, and bought a matching pair. The frame is beautifully detailed and finely crafted. The mirror has a lovely bevel. It is quite heavy and requires a substantial mirror hanger. This mirror is quite a find at this price.

Love, love, love my new mirror!!! It goes perfectly with my black and gold console. Even though it is more black and bronze, goes beautifully with my piece. I am so happy I could squeal!!! It's not as heavy as I thought it would be based on others' comments, but you will definitely need to hang it on a stud or an anchor support. This mirror is priced reasonably and came well packed. I don't think you will be disappointed if you buy this mirror. It could be used in either a formal or casual setting.
This mirror is exactly as pictured, except it's not as gold. It's more of a burnt bronze with a black edging under it. We got a gold leaf pen and painted it back it gold. It would look great in red too. The mirror is really heavy, but it comes with sturdy hardware.
I have been looking for a unique mirror to hang over a console table in my entry and was excited to find this one. The quality seems to be excellent. It is quite heavy. The one that I received is not the spotted gold as described but more a darker bronze color. This color is fine, just not exactly what I expected.
The mirror is very high quality and HEAVY! Uttermost makes exceptional quality and this mirror is up to their exacting standards. The glass is beveled and it came very well packed. It was in pristine condition upon arrival. We hung it with 2 ooks and it work just great. The hanging wire and equipment that came with the mirror seemed far more complicated than required. I highly recommend but the mirror is black not gold as pictured.
