18th Dynasty, ca.1539-1292 B.C. - Egypt

This delicate bronze hand mirror was cast in two pieces: the thin, ellipsoidal mirror disc has a tang that neatly fits into a hole in the socket handle and is held in place by a small bronze rivet. The handle is in the form of a papyrus column, perhaps the most popular shape for Egyptian mirror handles, with an attenuated umbel that is usual for this period. The thin, elegant disc, once burnished to a gleaming reflective surface, now features a fine deep green/brown patina.

The shaft of metallic mirrors were made in Egypt as early as the Old Kingdom and had function as well as religious and funerary uses. Reflecting the image of a person, the mirror disc was associated with vitality, generation and regeneration. The shape of the papyrus stalk, so often used as a handle, points out this association together with solar, and to a lesser extent lunar connection considering the shape and light-giving quality of the disk.

Dimensions: Height: 6 5/8 inch (16.82 cm)

Condition: with deep green/brown patina, mirror and handle possibly reattached, but intact and in very good condition overall. A rare example.
